Cain Velasquez Bringing Aggressive Style To Stop JDS At UFC 166

There has only been one man to defeat the UFC’s heavyweight champion of the world.

That man is former champion, Junior dos Santos.

Marred with controversy, an injured Cain Velasquez entered the cage for the UFC on FOX 1 main event and lost quickly due to the vicious striking prowess of Junior dos Santos.

The two then faced off again in a rematch at UFC 155 less than a year ago and Cain got his vengeance.

In exactly one week from tonight the third showdown in this epic heavyweight trilogy takes place and according to the champ, his gameplan is the same as the second fight.

“I did expect there will be a rubber match. It’s one to one and I am going to win this one. It is dangerous to be comfortable on your feet with Junior. His strong point is his boxing. The one thing you have to prevent him from doing in order for me to win is to not let him get too comfortable on his feet. The moment he gets really comfortable and he settles, that’s when he‘s the most dangerous. But, I’m not just boxing with him. I’m trying to throw everything at him. When he thinks I’m going to box with him, that’s when I’m going to wrestle with him. When he thinks I’m going to wrestle with him, that’s when I’m going to box with him. That’s when I’m going to kick box him, I’m going to do everything. I’m an aggressive fighter; I’m always in your face throwing something at you. Whether it’s boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, I’m always going forward. I’m not going to give this belt way. This is what I’m here to do, I’m going to stay champion for a while and on Oct. 19, I am going to come out on top. I’m going to stay champion.”

    Jds just got a lucky punch and finished the fight with punches to the back of the head.

  2. drew says:

    gotta agree with big daddy, WAR CAIN!

  3. Tristan says:

    Lucky punch? Please. When u knock out a grip of people that’s not lucky that’s power..

  4. Night-Wind says:

    There ain’t no such a thing as “lucky punch”.

    Those punches landed to side of Cain’s head. Watch it again.

    JDS is one of my favorite fighters but this is a tough fight for him. His only chance imo is a knockout. Cain has great cardio and is all around a great fighter so jds is going to have to finish this one early. Every fighter has a weak point. Cains is his chin, JDS’ is his grappling and cardio. I think this is going to be either just like the first fight or just like the second fight.

    2 warriors, love them both.. hope they fight another 2-3 times.

    This is gonna be a great fight,,, I’m hoping. Neither of these guys have a weakness. Jrs takedown defense is excellent and I don’t believe Cain has a glass jaw. These guys are both monsters and both show constant improvement. Don’t let the previous fights distract from the possibilities of this fight. I don’t think this fight will look anything like their others. These guys are too good and strategical to not give the best fight yet. I’m stoked.

  8. Night-Wind says:

    Truth is that if Junior can defense against Cain’s takedown attempts, he doesn’t need nothing more than his boxing.

    • Big daddy says:

      It isn’t so much his ability to defend against td, it’s the pace that’s going to be pushed. Jds is a big guy, tough but being gassed his boxing won’t save him.

  9. Night-Wind says:

    In the first fight, it actually did.
