Cain reaction: Junior dos Santos doesn't want to wait six months to fight


That's according to "Cigano's" manager, Ed Soares, who tells MMA Weekly that Dos Santos wants to fight while UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez undergoes surgery for a torn rotator cuff.

But that may be easier said than done.

With Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir possibly booked for an upcoming rubber match, there aren't too many heavyweight candidates on the UFC roster that haven't already gotten their asses handed to them by the hard-hitting Brazilian.

Except for the surgically repaired Shane Carwin, who lost his chance to fight Roy Nelson (again) when "Big Country" got in big trouble for cheating on his Roy Jones Jr. contract.

How about it Maniacs, is this a slugfest you would be interested in seeing? If not, who's the next choice from the very short list of available fighters?
