"Yes. I'm ready. I think I've been ready for a while. The way this sport works is you've just got to prove yourself when you get the chance. I want to fight the best so I can be the best ... I don't know what I do better than (Lesnar) but I do know I'd be ready. I know what I can do, I know I train with really tough guys, and I know I'd prepare myself to give him a really good fight -- I think it would be a really good fight between us ... I think I'd have to wear him out for the first two or three rounds, because he's so big and strong. I'd need to be weary of him at the beginning. I think that'd be my best option, trying to do that. He's a great athlete, and he has wrestled in the NCAAs, and you have to be a top athlete to do that, but I think that would be my best bet."
AKA product and fast-rising UFC heavyweight star Cain Velasquez shares his thoughts on a potential match up with the division's champ, Brock Lesnar. Prior to his career-catapulting performance on Feb. 21, UFC President Dana White announced that the winner of the night's main event between Velasquez and Minotauro Nogueira would get the title shot against Lesnar should the winner of the Frank Mir vs. Shane Carwin bout at UFC 111 have to be shelved after the fight due to injuries. So, despite the relative lack of experience in his young, though undeniably promising career, Cain may just get his wish sometime this year. Is the undefeated heavyweight ready to challenge for the crown, or is he still a couple fights away from deserving a shot?
