Velasquez: The path to Overeem goes through me


In a recent interview with Ron Kruck of, Cain Velasquez reaffirmed his bout with Junior Dos Santos, despite the feeling that the champion would rather fight Alistair Overeem first:

"I think he would want to fight him (Overeem) more, just because of the words they've been throwing back and forth, but he has to fight me first. Right now, I'm expecting for the rematch to happen, so that's what I'm thinking about. If the UFC tells me different, then I gotta prepare for something else, but right now, it's a for sure thing that I'm gonna be fighting dos Santos on December 29th."

True, but you can blame overeem entirely for this.

why would people pay for this fight when they got it for free last year on fox, especially since nobody was asking for another after the first fight.

That basically should have been a cut stoppage I wasn't impressed. Especially not enough to think he deserves a title hot after being owned last fight by the current champ.

"Everyone wants to see if Overeem is hyped or not, nobody wants to see if Cain can implement his "wrestle-instead-of-getting-knocked-out" game plan."This!!!^^^

Dana is more interested in praying that Cain gets a fluke win over JDS so he can get the Mexican demo back than making a fight the fans want to see.

Too soon?The Cain/JDS fight was almost a year ago.Well like Cain said whatever Zuffa wants goes.Not like it matters though because Overeem will get smashed by either JDS, Cain, heck even by DC.
