UFC on FOX press conference notes

source: mmamania.com

Dana White: It's great to have two healthy athletes up here finally and yes this is the biggest fight in UFC history. This has built to where we have millions of fans around the world. We've broken attendance records but this Saturday night on FOX, millions of people will see the UFC that have never watched it before. The biggest moment for the sport of mixed martial arts, these are the guys that you want to see fight. Primetime showed what kind of people they are, but on Saturday you'll see what kind of fighters they are.

Cain Velasquez: It's just fight week. That's what it feels like to me. It feels the same as any other fight. I've had a long layoff but I'm excited to be here again fighting in the L.A. area

Junior dos Santos: For me, I'm excited for this fight but no pressure. I had just as much pressure in my last fight. I just want to enjoy everything and I will.

Cain Velasquez: From both of us, expect exciting fight styles. We don't put on boring fights. Both of us try to go forward. That's what fans are gonna see, that's what people who have never watched the sport will see.

Junior dos Santos: Cain has great stamina and this will be a great fight and a war.

Junior dos Santos: I think in this case, Cain Velasquez is the number one heavyweight now but I want to change this on Saturday.

Dana White: I think you're gonna see both. It's funny that people argue that some guys are too big but Cain Velasquez proved that against Brock Lesnar. As this thing grows and gets bigger and bigger around the world. Mixed martial arts is the new martial art that people are taking. It's fun to hit a ball but being a heavyweight champion is completely different.

Cain Velasquez: For me, with wrestling in college, the weight limit there was 285 so I've wrestled against guys that were bigger than me and I used what I have to compete against those guys. I weigh what I weigh and I'm happy to compete against the bigger guys.

 Also, lol at "humble beginnings" from condom depot to blue chip names and at the very end when Burt Watson stood in front of Cain and I thought his legs were Cain's!
