Junior dos Santos
"This fight is going to be my toughest fight ever because I think Cain Velasquez is the number-one Heavyweight right now. So, it's going to be a tough fight, but I will be ready for him. I think Cain Velasquez is a very complete fighter. He's got good stand-up skills, good jiu-jitsu, but i think what he's got best is his cardio. His cardio is very, very good for a Heavyweight.
I think if Cain wants to fight standing with me, it's going to be a great fight, because he has good speed, good footwork - pretty good skills fighting stand-up. But, man, I believe so much in me fighting stand-up and I think that's my area. Someone's going to get knocked out and I think he has more of a chance to get knocked out than me. I will be ready to fight, it doesn't matter where, on the ground, on my feet, it doesn't matter where."
