UFC Champ Cain Velasquez: 'Bones' Should Beef Up for Superfight
We carefully approached Velasquez at LAX yesterday afternoon ... and he said Bones -- the reigning light heavyweight champ -- at 6'4' has what it takes to move up a class.
Cain said, "I think he has the body for it too ... he's tall so he can put on that weight."
I keep seeing the same images in my head when I think of Cain/Jones, and it involved Cain utterly ghosting Jones.
With Cain coming off a hiatus where he'll be able to mend a lot of his nagging injuries and be relatively healthy for the next year and given his utterly relentless pace, I think he'd set a record for most strikes landed in an ungodly stomping of Jones.....
Now if Jones and his handlers are smart, they wait about a year or two or so, let Cain accumulate a few more camps and a lot more wear and tear and THEN challenge him for the title. I think Jones beats Cain in around early 2016, because I don't think Cain's body is going to hold up much longer, especially with the training he does and the camps he goes through. Those AKA guys take a fuck-tonne of damage and from the Brock fight forward, Cain has really been the walking wounded.
