JDS’ coach says Velasquez can’t take a punch


The first time Junior Dos Santos fought Cain Velasquez he knocked him out in the first round at the first UFC on FOX. A year later, Velasquez defeating Dos Santos in a five round decision. Later this year the two will meet in a trilogy fight and Dos Santos' boxing coach is confident this third fight will end the same as the first bout:

The Brazilian knockout artist meets the UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez inside the Octagon for the third time at UFC 166, and his boxing coach believes he will need only a couple punches to take Velasquez out.

"I have no doubt that we will get closer to the knockout as soon as ‘Cigano’ lands one or two punches," Luiz Carlos Dorea told MMAFighting.com. "Cain’s ability to take a punch is his weakness, and that’s what we will explore in this fight."

"Cigano" needed only 64 seconds to end Velasquez’s undefeated run at UFC on FOX on Nov. 12, 2011, and Dorea is confident the fight will play out the same way next month.

"Cain is a complete fighter, deserves our respect, but ‘Cigano’ is stronger and more durable," he said. "The best way to win this fight is work on the punches, and we know the title is coming back to Brazil."

Sorry Brazil! Looks like after 10 rounds of being hit with JDS's best, it is now confirmed that JDS' coach should be fired and replaced with a wrestling coach!

IMO Cain takes the third, think it'll go similar to the second, although I think Cain will finish JDS this time around.

They're even at this point. Not many people can take a JDS bomb (1st fight) and not many people can stand Cain's relentless attack (2nd fight). Relax and enjoy the fireworks of the rubber match and be nice to each other, we are all here for the love of fighting.
