Cain Velasquez: There is nothing Ben Rothwell can do to me

Props: Pro MMA Radio


"He’s a normal person, just like me. Whatever he’s willing to do to me, you know, I’m willing to do the same to him. [I plan on] controlling him on the feet, making openings, taking him down. Just beating him up real bad, and picking my shots and really exploding on him; Letting him know that there is nothing that he can do to me."

UFC heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez talks about his upcoming fight with former IFL champion Ben Rothwell at UFC 104 from the Staples Center this Saturday, Oct. 24. Velasquez is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Cheick Kongo at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany. However, the victory was a disappointment to Velasquez, who took more punishment than he and his coaches had in mind. The fight with Rothwell will be his seventh professional fight. Can the AKA standout push his record to 7-0? Or will he face "Big" problems on Saturday night?
