Cain Velasquez Talks About MMA’s Top Heavyweights
"We'll never know until we all fight each other. But they're definitely the top guys. No joke about that." ---Cain Velasquez, UFC Heavyweight Champion
After snatching the UFC heavyweight belt from Brock Lesnar, it seems to be a job requirement for Cain Velasquez to say that he is the best heavyweight fighter in MMA. After all, he is the current heavyweight champion in the world’s biggest and most popular MMA promotion. However, he is not the one to make those kind of declarations.
When asked at MMAjunkie Radio about how the heavyweights of Strikeforce match up to UFC, he said: “We won’t know unless we get in the same organization. Who’s to say that I’m No. 1 or they’re No. 1 if we haven’t fought yet?”
Unfortunately, it’s a question that Cain Velasquez can’t answer as of the moment. He badly injured his rotator cuff after his UFC 121 match against Brock Lesnar, and he won’t be able to fight until the last quarter of 2011. So for now, he’s stuck on the sidelines, watching the MMA heavyweight unfolds.
