UFC 110: Cain Velasquez has too much respect for Big Nog

Quoteworthy:

"It's going to be a tough fight. Minotauro is one of the best. He is always hard and you can never underestimate him. Even while he is losing, always finds a way to invert the situation and finish the bout. I have too much respect for him. I watched The Ultimate Fighter in which he was one of the coaches and I respect him as a person and for the legend he is in this sport."

Rising undefeated heavyweight prospect Cain will face the hardest challenge of his young career at UFC 110 on Feb. 22, 2010, when he headlines the pay-per-view (PPV) event in Australia against Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira. The 27- year-old former collegiate wrestling standout will take on the much more experienced and submission-savvy mixed martial arts veteran in a clash that could signal a shift from the old guard to the new with a Velasquez victory. Can the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product dig deep and find a way to win or is "Big Nog" just to crafty and seasoned for him to handle at this stage of his career?
