Cain Velasquez Believes He’s A Better Fighter Than Junior Dos Santos

Cain Velasquez will have his opportunity for redemption come December 29 when he steps inside the Octagon with UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 155.

Late in 2011, dos Santos dealt Velasquez his first defeat, securing the UFC title in the process.

Now, after getting healthy and defeating Antonio Silva, Velasquez is ready to prove he is better than “Cigano.”

“I’m going to win this fight because I feel like I’m the better guy,” said Velasquez, in a recent interview with “I’m hungry and I want that belt back.”

Velasquez was dropped by an overhand right back on that fateful November night. The two heavyweights were the lone fight on the first UFC on Fox card from Anaheim.

“I got myself into this sport to be the best,” Velasquez said. “I’m not there right right. There’s one guy I have to go through to be that. There’s nobody better than me, especially Junior dos Santos.”
