“Yes, I did have an injury to my left knee 10 days before the fight. We knew his strategy would be to take me down. I don’t know if he had knowledge of my injury but in a minute and four seconds he kicked me in the knee seven times, so he probably knew about the injury, so much so that he accepted the fight standing, something I think he wouldn’t do otherwise because it wouldn’t be smart for him to do that.”
New UFC heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos, talks to Brazilian media outlet El Globo about his UFC on FOX 1 fight against Cain Velasquez.
The Brazilian speculates that Cain probably had some insider knowledge about the injury he was bringing into the cage with him and that may have given the former champ a boost in confidence in the stand-up realm.
Highly speculative but not entirely out of the realm of possibilities.
