He has a lot of work to do...
Cain Velasquez spoke with MMAjunkie about a potential superfight with Jon Jones and more. Check out the highlights:
On Jones focusing more on light heavyweight: "He has a lot of work to do in his division right now. He had Glover (Teixeira), and now he has ‘DC' and then he has (Alexander) Gustafsson also. I just think that's in the present moment right now because he has a lot of opponents coming up."
On Daniel Cormier potentially getting a shot at Jones: "He's ready for this. It's his time. Jon Jones has that long reach, which is going to make things difficult. He throws those kicks and a lot of punches. His elbows are tough as well, but I think Cormier just has what it takes to win."
On coaching TUF: Latin America: "It's been good. We've got a great group of guys and a good team going. Everyone has a great attitude, which I guess makes my job a lot easier that the guys are willing to put the work in and just to learn."
On getting ready for his next fight: "I get to come back slowly as far as training and getting back in shape. I have (head coach) Javier Mendez here look after me training. I feel good. I don't want to push it too hard right now but slowly get back in it. I can do everything with the left hand again, which feels good. The thing is just getting back in shape right now."
