Junior talks about how it felt to hear the news and that he can not wait a year to fight Velasquez for financial reasons. But on a positive note, it will give him more time to train his BJJ and wrestling.
"I was calm when I read a report explaining how [Cain Velasquez’s] injury had happened. That would be the fight of my life - and it will be, because if God wants, it’ll happen. Now its time to wait and see what UFC has for me. In the fight world, to make a little more (money), you have to be a legend as Wanderlei Silva or Rodrigo Nogueira or you have to be the champion and today I am neither one nor another but my objective is to be [the champion]. Looking on the positive site, it’s good because I will train more wrestling and jiu-jitsu to be able to surprise him but now I have to concern myself with the next adversary and I hope they [UFC] announce it soon."
