"I didn't know who he was until this," Velasquez told ESPNChicago.com. "I think he's using my name to gain publicity, which he has done, everybody is bringing it up."

Fury issued the challenge via Twitter.

"I challenge u to fight all in in a cage or ring! It could be billed as the man vs midget lets get it on!" Fury tweeted.

Velasquez smirked a bit when reminded of the insult, but he wasn't taking the bait.

"I'm not a boxer," he said. "I'm a mixed martial artist, and if he wants to fight, he can go into the UFC and work his way up like everybody else does. Nothing is given to you in this world.

"To me, it's like don't talk about it, go ahead and do it. That's all I have to say about that."

Dana should let this happen. Would be great PR for the UFC.

"He tested positive for performance enhancing drugs, which was double the limit of the Nevada State Athletic Commission."

The way he asked that, someone might think PED's are allowed to a certain level.

This guy works for ESPN, an outlet that reaches a tonne of people who know little to nothing about MMA.

Let's not get into the whole TRT thing though. I'm just talking about how this guy needs to come correct next time. Write down your questions or something next time, fuck.

It's a bit better than standard UG Blog procedure of misleading headline, misquote and repost of bleacher report junk passed off as article.

Let them fight in the octagon. Don't let the belt be on the line of course, make it a non-title fight. Then enjoy Cain trashing the idiot boxer. What kind of moron calls a person who is 6'2 and 250 pounds a midget?

I'm surprised the UG's headline wasn't:

Cain on Overeem, steroids: "we all do it"

That, and the fact that he didn't test positive for a PED at all...just elevated testosterone. He definitely should know all the facts before an interview. It makes reporting for the sport look amateurish.

Cain's right--Fury should work his way up.

Dana can just send him a standard fighter contract. Make it for three fights with escalating purses and a championship clause. He's a pro fighter. No need prove himself in the amateurs or local circuits. Straight to the UFC.

The guy's having trouble getting fights, so that's his option. Shouldn't take him more than a year to KO three UFC HWs if he's as effective as he hopes.

He wins all three fights, then he gets a shot at the current champ. He wins that, he stays with the UFC until he loses per the championship clause.

If Fury isn't interested in that, then tell him to STFU and everybody moves on. Phone Post

I believe the first comment was in regards to Chael Sonnen and his not stop yapping, getting a LHW title shot with no wins. Hence, he was givin a title shot.

Ah, then I retract my snarky comment but I had originally assumed it was about Cain getting a title shot after only 1 fight from losing the belt.
Your forgiven then

By the way, you looked great against JDS! Phone Post
