Dos Santos: 'I am hoping to fight Velasquez'

by Guilherme Cruz | source: tatame.com
 

Fabrício Werdum, Stefan Struve, Mirko Cro Cop, Gilbert Yvel e Gabriel Napão. Five fights, five wins, five knockouts. Junior Cigano’s career on UFC is overwhelming and the tough heavyweight dreams with his chance of fighting for the category belt. Despite having the UFC’s president as his fan, Dos Santos will have to wait.

 With the fight for the belt between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin, the American Cain Velasquez, Rodrigo Minotauro’s tormentor on his last fight *UFC 110), should be the next on the line for this opportunity, for Cigano’s mischance, who was waiting for a chance to revenge his master and get a little closer from his dream.

 “They don’t want to set a fight with Velasquez, for now it’s not interest for them. I was hoping for this fight because it makes total sense, but they don’t want it now... let’s wait and see, said Cigano, with no clue of the date of his comeback on UFC.

This fight needs to happen. I dont care what the Hype Machine says....this fight needs to happen. I look at this fight like Fedor vs Crocop for the new generation.

But not making this fight would be even more neglectful to the fighters though. They need to pay their bills and waiting to fight 7 months to 9 months so they can finally get a title shot is just fucking not going to do that. The main reason they are contenders is because MMA is their full time job(Aside from the exception of Carwin).

Cain-JDS would be a great HW fight, one of the best in terms of combined talent that the UFC has ever put on.

Dos Santos will avenge Nog and blast Cain. unlike Kongo, when Dos Santos hits you, you go to sleep, especially the chin on Cain.

This.It is hilarious that they are putting Cain on ice for up to year so he can get a title shot undefeated. Then again, Dana has openly said he wants the Latino market.

I'm laughing at the fans here actually trying to justify the UFC not making this happen. One of them will lose, so what? That's what happens when you have the best guys fighting each other, people get loses in their stupid records.The only way this is a bad thing is if you decide that it is. It's that simple. When fans decide that the best fighting each other is a bad thing, well, that's some backwards shit. Don't let keyboard warrior mentality ruin the sport.
