"Cain is from the new generation, he is young. He has a lot to prove but he looks very good ... He needs heart to beat me. Lots of heart. He needs to be very careful ... Maybe I am going to get a shot after this fight ... I don't make the rules on these things. I thought I was close before, but all I can do is fight and keep winning and training ... I am more confident than ever. I am doing things in my fights that I have done in the gym for a while and I am getting better. I think I will be the UFC heavyweight champion."
Cheick Kongo talks about a pending heavyweight showdown with Cain Velasquez at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany, at the Lanxess Arena on June 13. In short, he’s not scared of the highly-touted two-time All-American wrestler out of Arizona State University. Let’s just hope the "French Sensation" has polished his takedown defense since the loss to Carmelo Marrero at UFC 64: "Unstoppable" back in 2006.
