Cain Velasquez is one of the most dynamic Heavyweights in the division. His quickness and endurance has made him very successful. But those traits were mostly due to his smaller stature as a heavyweight. What has made Dos Santos the champ he is today is his quick feet and his heavy hands. When these two meet again tonight the major difference between the two are their skillset they bring into the game; Velasquez with his wrestling, Dos Santos and his striking.
Velasquez’s last fight against Dos Santos ended too quickly to see his both of their game plans. But I see fight ending very similar as it did before. Velasquez will have a hard time dealing with Dos Santos heavy and quick hands. But if there was any chance for Velasquez to pull out a win he will need to turn this fight into a wrestling match. Velasquez needs to take the Champ to the ground or stuff him against the cage.
