They fight for the third time at UFC 166...
UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez appeared on UFC Tonight this week to discuss his upcoming title fight with Junior dos Santos at UFC 166 on Saturday. Below are some highlights and a video from the segment:
Velasquez on what he'll do differently: "I know what I want to do in the sport and I know how to do it. I just know that when it comes to fight night, I have to go out there and put on a show and perform well and win."
Velasquez on what he's prepared for in a third fight: "I'm expecting different stuff from him. Our game plan is the same, I have to do the same stuff I did in the last fight. I have to keep fighting forward and looking for takedowns. I've improved from the last fight. I looked at the last fight and I've worked on some things."
Velasquez on if he's bothered by Dos Santos saying he hits like a girl: "It doesn't. With a loss people try to take something positive from it. That was all he could do. I didn't finish the fight. But it doesn't get under my skin."
Velasquez on if he'll look for a submission now that he has a black belt in jiu-jitsu: "I go into every fight thinking it'll be a hard five rounds back and forth, never thinking knockout or submission. If it comes, then I'll take it."
