UFC Quick Quote: Cain Velasquez is going to control Junior dos Santos -- if he can


"Everywhere it seems like, everywhere I go, just everybody is just so happy for me and I appreciate everybody being there for me and being behind me through [the Lesnar] fight ... With [Dos Santos], he’s a great stand-up fighter, he has great takedown defense, and he’s athletic. I think it will be a tough fight, but we’re looking for everywhere. We’re looking to strike with him, we’re looking to look for shots like we did with Brock. If the opening is there get the shots, control him on the ground if we can, but we’ll pretty much look to go everywhere with him."

Newly crowned UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez tells the Fan 590 in Toronto (via Sports Radio Interviews) that he's preparing to go "everywhere" with Junior dos Santos in his first title defense in mid-2011. Can the champ retain his belt against the Brazilian wrecking ball? Or will the Velasquez era be one and done? Predictions please.
