Video: Junior dos Santos destroys Fabricio Werdum in UFC 'Breakthrough Moment'

That uppercut is a work of art.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gives fans a sneak peek of its 'Breakthrough" special on May 14, 2012, to help promote the UFC 146 pay-per-view (PPV) event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. That's where reigning heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos will put his title on the line against feared Dutch striker Alistair Overeem.

But how did it all begin for "Cigano?"

Ask Fabricio Werdum, who had the unfortunate task of welcoming his fellow Brazilian into the ZUFFA family at UFC 90 way back in October 2008. Following the first-round knockout victory, Dos Santos was asked by reporters, "What did Werdum say to you when he entered the cage?" The soft-spoken rookie replied, "He said, 'I'm gonna smash you.' The follow-up question, was, naturally, "How did you respond?"

He replied, "We'll see."
