"I'm still fresh. I'm still a baby in boxing, with only four years of practice. I think my ground is good too if you want to know. I train with great guys in the USA and I'm always learning. This fight is going to be a test for me; I have a chance to surprise people because I believe Napao [Gonzaga] will try to take me down. There are positions that I developed in secret and if I've the chance I won't waste them."

When UFC heavyweight sluggers Junior Dos Santos and Gabriel Gonzaga square off in the co-main event of this weekend's UFC on Versus card, many people expect to see fireworks in the form of a stand up battle. JDS however, believes that the fight is likely to go to the ground, and he recently told UFC.com that he's more than ready for it. With another impressive win over the always tough Gonzaga, Dos Santos is likely to join Cain Velasquez in line for a title shot before the year is out. Will Junior continue his meteoric rise up the ranks of the UFC's heavyweight division? And if so, how is it gonna go down? Sound off, Maniacs.
