Velasquez on pulling out of UFC 180

November 13, 2014 1:51 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“My knee was pretty jacked up the whole training camp. I felt it was very unstable. My meniscus was torn. It was pretty bad. I needed to get it fixed.”


Cain Velasquez on if he tried to work through the injury: “I tried everything I could – not wrestling, not doing jiu-jitsu, just boxing. If I can’t do that stuff, I can’t be 100 percent. I don’t want to make the same mistake I did when I fought Dos Santos.”


Cain Velasquez on if it’s tough watching other guys fight for his belt: “For me it’s black and white. I’m going to get to fight the winner, so all I’m thinking about is getting healthy.”
