Cain Velasquez

Although plagued by injuries in his pro career, Velasquez is still regarded as one of the best heavyweight fighters in MMA history.

A large part of Velasquez’s success inside the Octagon came from his incredible cardio and his tremendous wrestling ability.

Another Strikeforce vet, Velasquez honed his skills early on developing his style. From the beginning, it was evident that most other heavyweights couldn’t handle Cain’s pace. Once Velasquez developed his punching power it was lights out for his competition.

Quite literally.

12 of Velasquez’ 14 wins have been via KO.
