UFC no. 1 heavyweight title contender Cain Velasquez is next in line to take on current champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 121. The Mexican-American fighter tells us that he is in shape and ready to take the opportunity to fight for the belt, even against a more “bigger and really powerful” guy like Lesnar. Velasquez seems to be pretty confident with his gameplan come October 23rd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
From Cain Velasquez:
“I’m in shape now, so it pretty much doesn’t matter to me either. (I’m) just staying ready, and that’s pretty much it, just have to find out when we fight. [Training has] been good, just getting a lot of technical stuff down, really working technique with my coaches. Trying to improve in stuff that I think I need improvement on. I think it’s been good. I think I match up well. He’s definitely a bigger guy and also really powerful, but I think I’ve trained and wrestled guys that are his size, so I’m used to competing against guys that are that big. I’m just excited for this opportunity.”
