The Brazilian beat Ben Rothwell via unanimous decision
Junior Dos Santos reaffirmed his status as one of the UFC's finest heavyweights with a unanimous decision over Ben Rothwell at UFC Fight Night Zagreb last night.
The Brazilian put on a boxing clinic as he picked apart his American counterpart and the former champion almost ended the fight in the second round with a monstrous overhand shot, followed by a kick to the midsection of Rothwell.
'You guys here made this experience in Croatia, for me, amazing,' he said after being announced winner.
'Thank you very much for that. I'm very glad that I could win tonight for you guys tonight. Thank you.
'I think we (had) the right strategy because you can't go in on a guy that size. I used my footwork to move a lot and throw some hard punches on him.
"I used my boxing, because guys, forget about jiu-jitsu and wrestling, I'm a boxing guy!' he said before the stadium erupted into cheers."
Dos Santos recorded a 50-45 victory on all three cards.
