Coach: Cain Velasquez will be ready to face JDS in SeptemberPosted on June 14, 2012, 12:28 PM by Anton Gurevich
According to Cain Velasquez' American Kickboxing Academy coach, Javier Mendez, former UFC Heavyweight champion suffered no injuries following his victory over Antonio Silva back at UFC 146, and will be ready to face Junior dos Santos in September.
Recent rumors suggested Cain Velasquez has a broken hand, and will need a surgery that could postpone the long-anticipated rematch with dos Santos until early 2013. However, Javier Mendez re-assured fans Cain Velasquez will be fight-fit for the planned UFC 152 headliner (via MMAFighting.com):
"We're looking at Sept. 22 as fight day."
Previous encounter between the two ended in Cain Velasquez losing his title to Junior dos Santos in just 60 seconds. The Brazilian wasted no time, and has successfully defended his title for the first time with an impressive TKO victory over Frank Mir. Velasquez and dos Santos are on collision course again, only that this time "Cigano" is the champion.
