Junior dos Santos: Cain Velasquez hits like a girl

In an interview with the Brazilian Portuguese language radio show “Pânico” former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos (16-2 MMA, 10-1 UFC) had the following to say about his UFC 166 opponent Cain Velasquez (12-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC):

“I had no cut against Cain Velasquez, and he hits like a girl. He hit me a lot during the five rounds, but did not open any cuts, although I was very bloated and had to go to the hospital.”

The mention of the hospital refers to a potentially fatal medical condition that JDS developed while training for their second fight, which Velasquez won decisively at UFC 155.

The pair will meet for a third time this fall when they headline UFC 166 in Houston, Texas on October 19th.

    JDS did you look in the mirror after the fight? He beat the $hit out of you and you looked uglier than shrek.

    I hope Cain KOs this idiot this time.

  2. Luke says:

    Well, the one thing JDS does better than Cain is hit harder. Everything else Cain has the edge at.

  3. some guy says:

    ya know i like JDS. but these comments that he made really makes no sense? i wouldnt take JDS as the shit talking kind… Cain could have knocked him out in that second fight, but he backed off and it was smart not to tire himself out. this third fight coming up will be no different JDS will lose, and i hope Cain knocks his ass out just for him saying he hits like a girl!

    Junior is going to need more than the ability to stand up quickly & hit hard when Cain goes after him. He needs to be able to counter, initiate his own GNP, or amp up bottom game (ju-jits), be more effective in the clinch. Keeping range, looking for the KO, and getting to your feet once slammed has been weighed and measured in Cain’s camp.

  5. y0l0 says:

    hits like a girl? is he talking about the same guy that dropped his ass in the first round and beat him down for 25 minutes?

    junior by tko… in 3, 2, 1…

  7. Diego says:

    JDS’s face after the fight clearly shows Cain doesn’t hit like a girl … Stupid for saying that … Hope Cain knocks our ass out !!!

    The thing JDS doesn’t realize is the game plan wasn’t to KO him but to destroy him for 5 rounds. Cain had a point to prove and that’s exactly what he done.

    JDS got lucky on there first fight due to a injury Cain had this is the only reason he got caught and KOed.

    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      Cain wasn’t injured he got back from one. JDS was the one who had an injured knee..

      • MossMonster831 says:

        Wrong!! After their first fight, the video of Cain blowing out his knee at the AKA gym was released. The video was filmed less than 10 days before their fight. Also, JDS didn’t hurt his knee. He had issues w/ his Kidneys….

        • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

          Wrong! Next time check your facts before typing it down…JDS had kidney trouble the second fight. First fight Cain came back from an injury and JDS walked around on crutches ten days before the fight.

  9. Joe says:

    Fact is Junior hit Cain about 5 times and knocked him out. Cain hit JDS over 100 times and never looked liked knocking him out. I don’t think Cain “hits like a girl” but i think JDS has a mean chin and Cain couldn’t finish him with his best shot.

  10. confucius says:

    this sounds more like gossip then something that would actually come out of JDS mouth. He doesnt say shit like this and this website is pretty suspect to people getting trigger happy and posting shit without valid proof so who knows what he really said.

  12. L says:

    So, you were beaten by a girl? is that what you are saying>

  13. Ddddddd says:

    Come on guys. Jrs always been one of the most humble people in the sport. Something’s not rite or out of context.
    If you don’t realize Jr is trying to get Cain to meet him in the middle standing you don’t truly understand the match. There’s got to be a bad guy to sell a fight and Jrs call out is the only thing they have to exploit. Cain knows what’s up and he’s too smart to fall victim I think,but if he does his end is obvious. This is the best match in the heavys you could ask for,so act like it. We saw what a loss to a champion Cain produced and if you think this wont push Jr to do the same then watch the footage of Jrs spinning ninja kick ko of a K1 champion. This is gonna be a war of wrestling vs chin.
    This reminds me of when Cain was suggesting Jr couldn’t wrestle. Their now even in the war of words now let’s see who can win.

  14. ERNESTODO says:

    you ignorants! Panico is a humoristic radio program from brazil, they were just talking nonsense for fun! PLEASE DON`T TALK IF YOU DON`T KNOW THE BACKGROUND. besides, in the second fight , jds was not even in the octagon, as he had just got divorsed from her wife a week before. JDS WILL WIN THAT BELT AGAIN, FOR SURE!

  15. K2 says:

    I guess that mean JDS has a face like a girl, cause those girly punches of Cain surely did something.
    (I know he’s just hyping the fight)

  16. Thom1 says:

    to be fair, if a guy like overeem had thrown the same punches JDS would’ve been KO’d quickly. I honestly think Cain is one of the weaker strikers in the division, just very technical (which means much more obviously).

  17. Lost in translation? says:

    JDS didn’t say this, or mean it in a derogatory way if he did say it! One thing about print media (or online): if you’re not actually hearing it, reading it changes the meaning dramatically. This doesn’t fit JDS’s personality.

  18. allmightysandman says:

    Holy Phuck he must know some tough girls!!!

  19. KIDD433 says:

    I’m sure it was taken out of context,Cigano isn’t a shit talker,and it sounds like he said jokingly.

  20. dragonking says:

    i find it funny all u ppl talking so much shit about jds online but none of u have the balls to say it to his face

    • James Dean says:

      I find it funnier how personal people take his comments when the statement isn’t even about them, meanwhile Cain probably couldn’t care less.

  21. simp2daone says:

    love both fighters, but this time it will determine who is the greatest fighter in the heavyweight division, both have won from there own fighting styles,JDS boxing,witch he knocked cains ass out in da 1st round to become champ, and Cain,wrestling, witch he ground and pounded JDS’S ass for 5 rounds to become the champ again, but they both are well versed in all aspects of the game,so the question is, can JDS, stop Cains double leg takedown, and avoid another beating on the ground? or can JDS tag Cain and drop him head first into the canvas, and become the world champ for the 2nd time? who knows, anything can happen on the nite, but like I said, I love both fighters, but Cain has been my main man from the start,team cain all da way. simp2daone lowkel!!!!!!

  22. kyle says:

    strictly fight hype guarantee neither of them have bad blood nor do I believe jds believe cain hits like a girl dana telling them to hype the fight
