UFC Quick Quote: What happens to Cain Velasquez if Brock Lesnar doesn't get tired?

Velasquez-lesnar-yell_medium

"[Brock] went three rounds with Heath Herring and was fine. We expect this is going five rounds, and we expect him to be there all five rounds. If you go in with the idea he’s going to get tired, what happens if he doesn’t? Cain is more skilled than Brock Lesnar at every aspect of the game. But can that overcome the size and strength? That’s the big question. If they execute their game plan and we don’t, they win. I think I know what their game plan is, and it’s a good one. But if they execute their game plan and we execute our game plan, we win. If it goes to a decision, we’re winning the decision."

American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) chief Javier Mendez (via Yahoo! Sports) wants to have all his bases covered heading into UFC 121 on Saturday night (Oct. 23) when his star pupil, undefeated heavyweight number one contender Cain Velasquez will try to dethrone reigning champion Brock Lesnar in the night's main event. Mendez is confident that gameplan-to-gameplan, the great Mexican hope is in a better position to win. But what if Lesnar has an answer for every "big question" they have? We'll find out in just a few days.
