Quoteworthy:

"My next fight would have been for the belt, but this one will be welcome, too. It will enhance my résumé a lot. I liked the choice and the opportunity to be a coach on the reality show [and] it will be a great challenge. I’ll do my job and keep after that belt. Lesnar is a tough guy. He’s great. He’s very different from Cain Velasquez, because he’s larger, but a bit slower. But he’s just as dangerous as Cain. It will be different, but I’ll keep working on the same things, which are my takedown defense and boxing."

Brawny Brazilian bomber Junior dos Santos, who surrendered his number one contender spot to coach opposite former champion Brock Lesnar on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13, considers the pasty-faced deer dropper as a perfect primer for what he believes is an eventual showdown with current UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez. The great unknown heading into the 2011 fight campaign is whether or not "Cigano's" takedown defense is good enough to repel the division's top wrestlers. Anyone think Brock fakes a touch of gloves and shoots for the double-leg on fight night?
