Frank Mir Reflects On Cain’s Win Over JDS | UFC NEWS


“I actually had it 50/50 going in, I still felt that Velasquez, I’ve always said one of the most well rounded heavyweights. I think that he was potentially the most dangerous guy, but obviously Junior’s takedown defense and his hands always make it something to always pay attention to. Even as dominating as Velasquez was, some of the body punches Junior started throwing and moving around, he’s some body that’s never really out of the fight, so that’s why I put it as a 50/50. Do I think that Velasquez is the better martial artist? Absolutely. He’s more well rounded. He can do takedown, he can avoid takedowns, he can box, obviously he landed more punches and threw more punches in the match when it did box. And on the ground he at least went for a submission attempt. Everybody says Junior has submissions on the ground, I think after now we can go close the book on that, after 25-minutes he went for zero attempts, so.”
