Cain Velasquez: JDS has the best overall technique I've ever seen at HeavyweightPosted on September 19, 2011, 06:07 PM by Joey Santosus
Reigning Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez, who will go head to head with Junior dos Santos at UFC on Fox, discusses a variety of topics, including his injury induced layoff, his first title defense, the signing of Alistair Overeem, and the return of Brock Lesnar.
"I've seen some of the promos that they've had for our fight and I think it's a great thing that they're giving this much publicity to us. I'm very proud to be in this position and that the UFC has chosen us, our fight, to be on Fox. So, I'm happy. I think we're both exciting fighters and then for it to be a Heavyweight Championship fight, that's the biggest thing out there. Everyone wants to see two big guys go out there and fight. So, you're going to see two of the best big guys go out there and fight that night. It's going to be fast paced. Seeing his fights, he moves really quick. He has a high pace and I do too. I think that's why they chose our fight, it's definitely going to be a great fight...He's definitely going to be more dangerous with his boxing - his power. He's got a lot of speed, his technique overall is definitely the best I've seen as far as Heavyweights in the sport or in the UFC. So, all of those aspects are going to be really tough to handle. I never go in thinking about a knockout. I always think about it being a tough fight for five rounds. But, anything can happen with those small gloves that we have on."
