One of the baddest men on the planet -- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos -- is an avid Katy Perry and Adele fan.

And he's not afraid to admit it.

Aside from enjoying knocking out people, "Cigano" says the harmonic soft tunes of the super talented Grammy Award-winning artist Adele, and the pop sounds of the voluptuous Katy Perry, have helped him with his always improving English speaking skills.

Not one to be ashamed of his musical preferences, the happy-go-lucky UFC champion goes as far as to say that even if a car full of tough guys rolls up next to him while he's jamming out to "The One That Got Away," he won't turn down the volume one bit.

Make the jump to hear from the Brazilian himself and to also hear his rendition of Adele's award-winning song, "Someone Like You," courtesy of TMZ:


Perhaps Perry's "Firework" may be an appropriate walkout song for dos Santos when he makes his way to the Octagon to take on Alistair Overeem at UFC 146 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 26, 2012.
