"I just want to say sorry to all the fans, friends and family. I disappointed you. I'm worth much more than this. I will come back. And I will get this belt back, for sure. He kind of messed up my equilibrium [with the overhand right]. It was a good shot. He has a lot of power. I waited too much for him. He went in and did what he was supposed to do, so my hats off to him tonight."

-- Immediately following his knockout loss to Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC on FOX 1 tonight (Sat., Nov. 12, 2011) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, Cain Velasquez laments his performance. The now former heavyweight champion of the world couldn't help but feel sadness at the fact he disappointed both his family and the live crowd in attendance, who were heavily in his corner. That was until they were quieted by "Cigano's" monster overhand right, just like Velasquez, who lost his equilibrium and, shortly after, his belt. And it all went down in just 66 seconds. These things happen in MMA, especially when you're in there against one of the greatest strikers in all the land. Velasquez says he will come back stronger and better than ever, though, ready to regain the title. Anyone think he can do it?
