CAIN VELASQUEZ RUMORS

Metamoris 4 welcomes UFC veterans to the competition

You can’t just punch and kick your way into becoming a successful mixed martial artist. A fighter must be able to display excellence in more than one fighting discipline and usually the staple of a proficient fighter is the grappling game. From wrestling to jiu jitsu, the art of submissions and ground control is something every fighter should have in the back pocket, even at the...

Cain Velasquez is taking his time recovering from surgery, won’t rush into a fight this year. Should there be an interim champ?

Cain Velasquez is taking his time coming back from shoulder surgery, and as we know now from UFC Tonight and Cain’s coach, Javier Mendez, the heavyweight champ was medically cleared to use his right hand two weeks ago, but won’t rush into a fight. That fight, specifically, is against Fabricio Werdum, in Mexico City, and supposedly slated for November. There’s been rumblings...

Rousey: I can beat up Cain Velasquez

Ronda Rousey thinks she can beat UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. Not in a race. Not at a surfing contest. Not in a who-can-hit-the-most-armbars-in-one-minute competition. Rousey thinks she can beat Velasquez – the baddest man on the planet – in a fight. At MMA. "In any given moment, under the right circumstance, I think it is possible," Rousey told the...

Cain Velasquez: Hopefully No More Excuses From Junior dos Santos After UFC 166 Beating

After Junior dos Santos put Cain Velasquez (pictured) to sleep in merely 64 seconds in their initial encounter, a humiliated Velasquez never offered up any excuses following the lone blemish on his résumé. He simply promised that he would reclaim the throne in their rematch. Speaking of their sequel, Velasquez kept his word. He dominated dos Santos like no man had ever done before...

Cain Velasquez beats Junior dos Santos at UFC 166

Entering Saturday night, UFC president Dana White dubbed the rubber match between heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (pictured) and Junior dos Santos as “the biggest trilogy in MMA history.” I’m not going to debate that, but I will say Part III looked an awful lot like Part II. Only this time, instead of taking a lopsided unanimous decision victory, Velasquez was able to finish...

JDS says “Cain Velasquez is going to sleep!”

Outside of the cage, former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos is one of the most affable people you could every hope to encounter. All smiles and giggles, the 29-year-old for Salvador, Bahia, Brazil is the embodiment of what you would like all professional athletes to be when they're interacting with fans and media.

Junior dos Santos Still Doesn’t Know What Went Wrong in Rematch with Cain Velasquez

Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos (pictured) is an honest guy, perhaps to a fault. When asked why he thought he was utterly destroyed by Cain Velasquez in December’s rematch, dos Santos provided the worst possible answer, then proceeded to give the second-to-worst response. “It’s hard to know. I don’t know. I don’t really know that,” dos Santos told ...

Cain Velasquez pre-fight interview

On October 19th at UFC 166 in Houston, UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is on a two part mission to prove that the former champ Junior dos Santos' win over Velasquez at UFC on FOX in November 2011 was a fluke. The first half of that statement was received loud and clear in the rematch at UFC 155 when Velasquez delivered a brutal 5 round drubbing of dos Santos to reclaim...
