VELASQUEZ ON WERDUM: “I SAY IT’S GOING TO BE A FIVE-ROUND WAR. IF IT ENDS EARLY, I’VE DONE SOMETHING RIGHT.”


UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez joins UFC Tonight to discuss this weekend’s main event against Fabricio Werdum.

Cain Velasquez on if he’ll change his training style after all his injuries: “I’ll keep it the same. It’s working. It’s not just us getting hurt. Other fighters are too. We’re fighters. We spar. It takes a toll on the body. I’m 100 percent healthy now. I’m happy with the training camp.”

Velasquez on how he’ll fight Werdum: “He’s a complete fighter. He punches, he kicks. He’s one of the best on the ground. We know what we have to do to beat him. We have to apply a lot of pressure, a lot of punches and kicks.”

Velasquez on Werdum claiming he can win the fight anywhere it goes: “Every fighter has that confidence, but I’m going to show himSaturday what’s going to happen.”

Velasquez on if he thinks Werdum’s interim title is a paper title: “He’s the interim champ. He didn’t get the real belt, obviously. I’m happy to show everyone who the real champ is.”

Velasquez on how the fight will end: “I never have a prediction. I always say that it’s going to be a five-round war. I’m ready for everything. If it ends early, then I’ve done something right. I expect a long, grueling fight.”
