Velasquez: I'm winning this fight

by Scott Wilson | source:

One advantage Velasquez feels he has heading into his fight with Silva is the fact that one of his training partners already squared off with Bigfoot. Daniel Cormier, who this past Saturday night won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament championship, beat Silva in the semifinals of the same tourney. Velasquez and Cormier train at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose.

"I've been watching what happened between (Silva) and Daniel Cormier," Velasquez said. "I train with Daniel a lot. I have to try to be quicker than him. I think that fighting style with him will do well. I have to be good on the ground with my wrestling and jiu-jitsu. I think I can beat him with that, too. I think (whether we fight) on our feet or on the ground, I'm winning this fight."

 Mexicans are well aware of that.  They are helpless to do anything about it.  It is just hopeless.   The Brown Pride isn't necessarily a pride in the country rather in its people and the struggle.  Felling your country and making a life in one where you donm't speak the language and are hated on by many takes a great deal of resiloiancy and an accomplishemnt to be very proud of.    Cain is far too technical and physically superior to Big Foot.  This will be a show case fight for the young Mexican fighter.

No but seriously, what part of 'anything can happen at that level' your brain isnt able to process? If your only line can be ' you are a fucking retard' then can you just stop breathing and spare us some oxigen, are you a school dropout or something like that? Gosh I dont even know why Im wasting my very important responding to someone like you, go back to your playstation now I have to take a shower and fuck my gf

I'm a huge JDS fan and i hope Cain gets the next shot after mir (assuming Overeem or cormier isn't an option) just because I know JDS would just win again. Maybe not as quick, but still ko or tko within 2 rounds.Cain is still very legit and his only loss is to the champ. Hw is still pretty shallow, I wouldn't be surprised or upset if Cain got the next shot.

That "good punch" is a result of JDS' skills, saying Cain is the best HW outside of a good punch is fucking moronic and completely takes away from what JDS has done and doesn't show him much respect, might as well say that punch was lucky.
