"I think dos Santos is a great opponent. I've watched his other fights and I think he's definitely one of the most talented boxers out there in MMA. He punches hard, he has good takedown defense, he's athletic; he really doesn't have a hole in his game so that's going to make it a tough fight for me, definitely."
Cain Velasquez is no Chael Sonnen when it comes to hyping a fight. He's just honest in his assessment of his opponent, Junior dos Santos, who he will take on this Sat., Nov. 12, 2011, at UFC on FOX 1 in Anaheim, California. The heavyweight champion sees no holes in "Cigano's" game and knows he's got one hell of a test for his very first title defense. Not only that, he's got the added stress of performing in the biggest fight in UFC history. No pressure.
