Junior Dos Santos: Cain Velasquez may 'surprise' Brock Lesnar at UFC 121

Quoteworthy:

"It’s complicated, they’re very different. Cain’s technique is good and prevails, just like his great conditioning, while Brock is an aggressive guy, heavy… I think it’ll be a good fight and I can fight any of them. I don’t have a favorite for this fight, but I believe Cain may surprise. Now I just have to concentrate and go back to the trainings and start to think about by preparation for this title fight, since it’ll be a five rounds fight with one of the best, Velasquez or Lesnar. I have to train hard, concentrate and focus so that I can bring this title to Brazil. I believe I have enough weapons to surprise."

Junior dos Santos -- the man who will challenge the winner of the UFC 121 bout between heavyweight division champion Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez -- shares his thoughts on match up, saying the undefeated Mexican-American could raise a few eyebrows when the action starts on Oct. 23, 2010. However, he stops short on making an actual prediction. "Cigano" will more than likely face his toughest competition to date, regardless of who walks away with the win. But does the heavy-handed Brazilian have an advantage over Lesnar and/or Velasquez, which would make it a better match up for his punishing style? Opinions, please.
