Overeem Says JDS Is Scared Of Him, He'll Get His Shot

In recent interviews UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos has stated that he doesn_t feel Alistair Overeem deserves a title shot when he returns from suspension and would like to see him fight someone first.
The UFC may have different plans and instead Overeem could face the winner of December_s heavyweight title fight between Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez early in 2013. He was asked about Dos Santo_s recent comments by mixfight.nl this week:
Well Junior dos Santos says all kind of things that don’t really make sense. First he begged to Dana White he wanted to fight me, so as a fighter I accept such a challenge right away. Now he’s saying that I don’t deserve a title fight. He has to make up his mind as he’s changing his story all the time. The same stuff he was saying about me going to the school of Chael Sonnen. I never made the fight between us personal and I never bad mouthed him, the only thing I said was that I think he’s afraid of me which I think he still is haha. When I signed with the UFC I could of easily go for the title shot right away but I chose to fight Brock Lesnar so in no means I’m talking myself into a title shot. If the UFC wants me to fight for the title I’m available and if they decide to let me fight someone else first I’m also fine with that. I’m a fighter and I will get my chance sooner or later.
