As is the norm, main event fighters were given one last chance to state their plans following weigh-ins for tonight’s UFC 166 card.
UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos don’t have to go through drastic weight cuts, but you could tell the pressures of their third fight are getting real.
“I am ready for a tough fight, a five-round fight,” Velasquez said. “I am ready for whatever.”
Velasquez dominated “Cigano” for five rounds in their last contest, earning a decision victory. Dos Santos previously knocked out Velasquez in the first bout between the two.
“This is going to be a great fight for the fans,” he said. “I am going to give you guys one more knockout.”
