CAIN VELASQUEZ RUMORS

Fabricio Werdum cements his place as the number one contender, is coming for Cain Velasquez

It’s Easter Sunday. I should be preparing to go visit the family so I can eat some guilt-laden ham, but all I can think about is UFC on FOX 11, and the brilliant performances therein.

Rousey: I can beat up Cain Velasquez

Ronda Rousey thinks she can beat UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. Not in a race. Not at a surfing contest. Not in a who-can-hit-the-most-armbars-in-one-minute competition.
