Cain Velasquez didn’t just let UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos stick his big hand in his face this time following weigh-ins Friday. Instead, Velasquez answered back with his own left.
The two will collide for a second time tonight at UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II from Las Vegas. FightLine will have complete coverage of the entire event.
Following weigh-ins, Velasquez was asked by Fuel TV why he got in the face of dos Santos, to which he replied, “To let him know I am coming after him. If someone puts a fist in my face, I am going to do it right back to him. That is my mentality.”
Velasquez was defeated in the first round by “Cigano” back in 2011, but rebounded to earn a rematch by devastating Antonio Silva. The former NJCAA national wrestling champion has envisioned his hand being raised many different ways this evening.
“A knockout, TKO, submission, a five-round grueling fight,” Velasquez said. “Every time with my hand raised.”
