Cain Velasquez talks about his torn shoulder, his potential bout against Strikeforce's stable of heavyweights, and his possible rematch against Brock Lesnar.

As part of the Super 7 Q&A session in Toronto last month, Cain Velasquez addressed his injury, his likelihood to match-up against Strikeforce’s heavyweight fighters, and his feelings about a possible rematch against Brock Lesnar.
