Former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez appearead on HDNet’s “Inside MMA” and spoke about his UFC 146 fight vs. Antonio “Big Foot” Silva:
“‘Bigfoot’s’ a big guy, you know? I think he does everything well. He mixes up his punches and kicks really well. For me, I think, with his overall size, I gotta be quicker than him. So, a lot of ‘in and out.’ If the takedown’s there, take it. Just try to beat him off the quickness.
The training sessions with Daniel have been great. The type of athleticism and skill that he brings to this, it’s just great to be in with a guy like that, every day, to train with a guy like that, every day. As far as him, with his fight with Silva, he took him apart early.
He told me what he felt out there, even though it was short. But, I’m not expecting to fight the same guy that he fought. I’m expecting to fight a better guy. He dismembered him so quickly.”
