Cain Velasquez Ready For Brock, Size Won't Matter


Top UFC Heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez has a date with Champion Brock Lesnar in the near future and although Lesnar will likely have a significant size advantage over Velasquez, he doesn't seem to mind:

“I'm in shape now, so it pretty much doesn't matter to me either. (I'm) just staying ready, and that's pretty much it, just have to find out when we fight. [Training has] been good, just getting a lot of technical stuff down, really working technique with my coaches. Trying to improve in stuff that I think I need improvement on. I think it's been good. I think I match up well. He's definitely a bigger guy and also really powerful, but I think I've trained and wrestled guys that are his size, so I'm used to competing against guys that are that big. I'm just excited for this opportunity.”
