Junior Dos Santos has attempted to explain his lop-sided UFC heavyweight title defeat to Cain Velasquez, claiming he had personal problems leading into the fight and he peaked too early in his training.

As a much bigger fan of JDS than Cain, JDS should give Cain all the credit. Cain came in, pushed the pace and executed his game plan.

I don't remember hearing Cain making excuses but a knee injury that required surgery that hampered his movement is a much more valid excuse than "I wasn't mentally ready for this title defense"

He should just admit he took the fight lightly and thought Cain wouldn't be a threat.

So, JDS is asked his opinion on why he lost the fight. He responds with a comment stating he didn't feel he was mentally strong and doctors told him he may have over trained. This is chalked up as a list of excuses and suddenly JDS loses credibility. I don't understand how this happens after every event. I see JDS's comments as a simple self-assessment, which I believe in no way was meant as an insult to Velasquez's abilities or achievements.

If you don't feel mentally strong in a title fight, then you shouldn't be fighting at all. All he had to say was Cain came in better prepared and was the better man that night. Everything else just discredits Velasquez's performance

A link to a translated copy of the interview in which JDS makes his "excuses." Credit and all proper respects are given to Velasquez. I don't feel JDS was being disrespectful by evaluating his own performance, however, I do think all fighters should respond with the accepted robotic response "He was the better man that night." to avoid similar accusations.

Malice, have you ever worked with someone who was always making excuses for why they couldn't do their job? This is how it sounds, and if you''ve heard it enough from coworkers, you've heard it enough from fighters. Just sack up, take the loss, and say shit like "I will come in more focused/ I'll take his head off next time/ Nob ody will stand int he way of my revenge" and not say " I had tons of stuffs on my mind grapes and couldn't focus". He isn't discrediting Cain, he's just sounding like a child, finding ways to avoid direct blame.

The more I hear about JDS the more I don't want to watch him fight. He won't give it up. You lost, get in the back of the line. Like Cain said about fury, work your way to the top and quit talking.
