UFC on FOX 1: If Cain Velasquez strikes with Junior dos Santos, someone's getting knocked out (Video)

"He's a complete fighter. It's going to be tough for me. I think if Cain wants to fight standing with me, it's going to be a great fight because he has good speed, footwork and pretty good skills fighting stand up. But, man, I believe so much in me, fighting stand up. I think that's my area. Someone's going to get knocked out. And I think he's got more chances of getting knocked out than me."

Hard-hitting number one division contender, Junior dos Santos, talks about his upcoming showdown with heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez in the historic UFC on FOX 1 main event, which is scheduled to take place this Saturday night (Nov. 12, 2011) from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

"Cigano" is confident in his hands and thinks his odds are better to score a knockout if the decorated Arizona State University (ASU) NCAA Division I wrestler decides, or is forced, to exchange blows for an extended amount of time during their five-round fight, which is scheduled for 25 minutes. 

Despite his background, Velasquez has evolved into a dangerous striker, finishing Ben Rothwell, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Brock Lesnar via strikes in his three most recent appearances.

Anyone beg to differ with the Brazilian?
