Via YouTube:Heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez mic’d up Octagon-side for UFC 156 as his next opponent is determined. See Velasquez’s live reaction as he watches Bigfoot Silva pull off an epic knockout against Alistair Overeem. Velasquez faces Bigfoot in the rematch at UFC 160 this Saturday, May 25th.What the description doesn’t point out is that Cain Velasquez’s live reaction is almost no reaction, and his cold, obvious explanations of what you’re watching reminded me way too much of Arnold Schwarzenegger doing commentary on Total Recall. Just replace “this is me on the screen here” with “Overeem threw 2 to 3 punches.”I guess I can’t blame him too much. This is his job, after all. But hey, if he wasn’t enthusiastic about Bigfoot Silva’s win here, I’d like to see him run commentary on this clip of Bigfoot trying to fit into a normal sized man’s helmet and do laps around a racetrack in Sao Paulo.LOOK AT HIS HELMET, SERIOUSLY.What is that even gonna do?[h/t to ME]The post Cain Velasqu

Cain Velasquez fighting in the Strikeforce heavyweight division?
The man who would be king made his mixed martial arts (MMA) debut inside the Hexagon nearly seven years ago at the Save Mart Center from the campus of California State University in Fresno. Headlining the card was a 265-pound main event featuring David Abbott vs. Paul Buentello.

Before UFC 156 very few people gave Bigfoot a chance against Overeem, but we all know what happened there and now Silva is days away from a rematch with Cain but this time its for the UFC heavyweight title. Still got to have Velasquez as the heavy favorite.

“Bigfoot” is in big trouble at UFC 160, at least if you were to ask the Gambling Gods. Antonio Silva (pictured) is nealry a 5-to-1 underdog this Saturday when he challenges heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez for his hardware.
Velasquez, meanwhile, is a whopping 7.5-to-1 odds-on favorite to steamroll the Brazilian (again).

How can you boo JDS? Really, how can you? Did the entire arena that booed JDS at UFC 155 in his losing effort against Cain Velasquez realize they were booing:
A. One of the nicest guys in the sport?
B. One of the most hardworking?
C. They were kind of booing for no reason? I can’t recall the last time someone got booed for getting beat up for 25 minutes. What a weird moment...
The story Saturday night at UFC 160 in Vegas is the fight between two titans of the Octagon, Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva. However, at the weigh-in the story (at least for me) is Mike Tyson.No, Iron Mike is not coming out of retirement and stepping in to fight Nick Diaz or anything. It's the look on his face when Khabib Nurmagomedov and Abel Trujillo squared off during the...
Is “UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot II” worth its $54.95 pay-per-view price tag? I mean, the two featured fights aren’t even expected to be close.
As a matter of fact, the only main card bout that should be competitive is the welterweight affair with Mike Pyle and Rick Story. Other than that, the other four showcase scraps should be landslides – that is if you were to ask...
