Cain Velasquez Looks Back On Loss, Didn't Expect To Stay Undefeated

Cain Velasquez made a statement in the MMA world when he stopped Brock Lesnar to win the UFC Heavyweight title last year but the party was short lived as he would lose it to Junior Dos Santos in the Fall in just 64 seconds.
Velasquez returns to action against Frank Mir at UFC 146 this May and talked about getting back in the cage and also putting the loss into perspective this week in an interview with Yahoo Sports:
"I'm a realist. I knew I wasn't going to go through my career undefeated. That's how this sport is. People lose. Even the best guys lose. I knew as soon as it was over, I had to pick myself back up and keep going forward. I do have some extra motivation now, for sure, but I wish that for that night things had gone differently and that the fans had gotten the fight they came to see. Ultimately, I let myself down. I don't ever want that to happen, and not for Fox or anything else. I want to go out there and win. Stuff happens. I get that, but I definitely wasn't happy with my performance. What it comes down to it, I don't want to be in that position again."
