Dana Discusses Valasquez vs Lesnar

Speaking after Cain Valasquez’s UFC 110 win against Big Nog, it seems we as fans, weren’t the only ones shocked by the result;

“I didn’t see it coming,” UFC President Dana White admitted after the bout. “I thought that was going to be a back-and-forth and entertaining fight, and Cain Velasquez went out and absolutely finished him and looked completely dominant and looked, in my opinion, better than he’s ever looked. The kid gets better every time he fights.”

Velasquez finds himself possibly in line for a title shot against UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. White had announced last month that Lesnar would defend his title this summer against the winner of the Frank Mir/Shane Carwin interim title match at UFC 111. If either Mir or Carwin is injured, Lesnar would then face Velasquez. White reiterated those comments during the UFC 110 post-fight press conference last night.

“We’ll see what happens with Mir and Carwin… see who wins that. If the guys come out unscathed, they’ll fight for the title,” said White. “If not, then Cain Velasquez will get that slot.”

    I also think he should put on some more weight but people saying he has no chance against Lesnar and that he will just be dominated on the ground are wrong imo. If you look at when Lesnar fought Randy he had about a 40-60 lb weight advantage on him and still wasnt able to just plow through him. Randy was even able to get up after one of the take downs. That being said i understand that Randy is an excellent wrestler but so is Cain and he will not be at such a severe weight disadvantage. All I am saying is i think it will be a very competitive fight and i think it could go either way, remember Lesnars only had 5 fights I think if he can beat the upcoming contenders then he will have lived up to the hype.
