In a recent interview with Ron Kruck of AXS.tv, 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."

Title fight is too soon, he just lost to the man. UFC dropping the ball by not making the Overeem - JDS megafight for this recycled mismatch.

I don't want to see Velasquez fight JDS again. I want to see JDS fight Overeem. I hate the whole losing a belt and then winning one fight to get another title shot.

Nothing against Cain, but I think JDS vs Overeem is better fight solely because I'm not sure how I feel about Overeem and would like to see his standup game tested. IMO JDS is the man for that job. Phone Post

Agreed man it's way too soon and I simply cannot get excited for it. That ko is still too fresh in my mind. It's like nobody has to climb back up the mountain anymore, you win a fight and get a title shot.

I agree with hating on the immediate rematch for belt losses.

The ONLY time we should be seeing it is when the bout is scored a draw. (and I would argue, even then not always)

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.

More interested in seeing Reem and JDS go toe to toe than see Cain try wrestle JDS from the bell.

But this is not an immediate rematch
Cain beat Bigfoot
Plus Overeem got popped for roids so he can't fight in December Phone Post

I've said this before but whether the fans/media/whoever feel that Cain deserves this rematch or not, the UFC told him he's getting it. I'd like the UFC to keep their word - we all know that's not always the case.

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. Phone Post

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. Phone Post

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.

True, but you can blame overeem entirely for this. Phone Post
