Exclusive Interview: Cain Velasquez Loves Fedor, Waxing, and Us


Cain Velasquez talks to CagePotato.com – Watch more Funny Videos

Just a few days out from his UFC 121 heavyweight title fight against Brock Lesnar, #1 contender Cain Velasquez sat down with our man Ruben Vera to answer some tough questions. For instance, what exactly is Cain going to bring to the table that’ll make him different than the other top heavyweights that Brock has already smashed? Velasquez also discusses the looming threat of Junior Dos Santos, the responsibility of being the new Latino standard-bearer in the UFC, and his appreciation of Fedor Emelianenko. Plus: UFC 121 picks, where Cain falls on the tweezers vs. waxing debate, and just like with Phil Baroni, Ruben somehow manages to get Cain Velasquez to say that "CagePotato is the best." Damn, bro…are you holding these guys’ families hostage or something?

He's either never viewed this website or he is feigning his admiration. The amount of anti Hispanic sentiment espoused by xenophobic wankers in the threads is pretty fucking grating. If it weren't for the generally humorous take on all things MMA to be found here (by both the writers and a fair amount of the potato nation) and the opportunity to occasionally point out how retarded this xenophobic sentiment is (for me anyway), then this would just be another shitty American MMA website.

Example: You guys have an NBA team called the suns. How is naming a team after 'a massive, luminous ball of plasma held together by gravity' any less stupid then naming a soccer team after a continent or a term for co-operation between more then one nation (international). Also, women are indoctrinated into supporting their local NFL/NBA/MLB team but the majority of them wont ever play the sport. Sport is like politics. If your parents are barracking for one side you're gonna tend to barrack for the same team - regardless of whether you participate in it or not. /rant.

oki-who oki-ryu- October 21, 2010 at 4:59 pm
there is an international (Interzazionale Milano) in the italian Serie A Footbal (not soccer) league as well.
Fried Taco- October 21, 2010 at 1:08 pm
In Brazil, there is a local soccer team called International. I still haven't figured that one out yet.

Does the force come from English?

Furthermore, how does angular momentum generate speech?
Almost North- October 21, 2010 at 12:47 pm
English dosen't come from force homie.

Q: How are Mexicans like pool balls?

A: The harder you hit 'em the more English you get.
ReX13- October 21, 2010 at 12:14 pm
Fried Taco >> Yeah, but it still seems weird to call a soccer team for ssuch a large region. It would be like the Dallas Cowboys vs Team America.


Wait a minute.... that could be awesome.

MMA in "America"... The White Man's Last Frontier

In this best selling novel, the author examines the insecurity exhibited by white MMA fans in the United States, commonly and incorrectly referred to as America. In the ever changing landscape that is "America", dirty immigrants from the four corners of the world- African, European, Asian, Middle Eastern, etc.- are rapidly growing in number. As a result, the white man finds refuge in the Last Frontier... Mixed Martial Arts message boards. Mixed, of course, being fine and dandy in martial arts, but a big No-No in couples dating, marrying and especially having mixed race children. "It just ain't right. Come here sis, gimmee a kiss" says one fan. Take a look as MMA fans vent their frustration, desperation and constapation on MMA web sites. Truly a fascinating experience.

^Not a real book, fellas. Relass(spanglish). Tek it eessy, tek it eessy.
Almost North- October 21, 2010 at 11:23 am
Mexico is in North America...so...yes?
Frank Mur- October 21, 2010 at 11:17 am
But do "North Americans" ever refer to themselves as "Mexicans?"
Almost North- October 21, 2010 at 11:16 am
prid ta bee 'n murican?
Fried Taco- October 21, 2010 at 11:00 am
@ReX13 It may come as a surprise, but other North Americans, Central Americans, and South Americans sometimes refer to themselves as Americans. Of course, they don't refer to themselves as Muricans.

^^Indeed!

Now there's just that Dana White fellow.... :)
Bruce_Buffer- October 21, 2010 at 10:29 am
Well now that Cain V is a fan, you wont have to worry so much about Kongo anymore.
danomite- October 21, 2010 at 10:19 am
I don't watch all of Cain's interviews, but in the ones I've seen I've never heard anybody ask him about fighting at light-heavyweight. Has anybody ever asked him about it? I've been saying he should do it if he can do it since about 3 fights ago. The guy doesn't have to cut weight right now so he probably isn't on any kind of diet. In reality he would only have to lose about 15 lbs of fat. If he fought at LHW I think he has a good chance of going undefeated for a long time. What is there for him at heavyweight? If he beats brock, he either gets brock in an immediate rematch or he fights JDS. After those two who are the other guys out there that could be considered contenders? Maybe Shane Carwin, but that's it. I'd like to see him, win or lose, try to get the LHW belt sometime soon.
steampunk22- October 21, 2010 at 10:17 am
I can confirm that.

@Rex13 is whiter than Michael Jackson's ghost.

;P
El Famous Burrito- October 21, 2010 at 10:14 am
Yeah, pride, even. In fact, Rex, you may need some kind of permanent reminder to yourself of having such pride.

Something you see everyday. Something that declares this to others when they see you so you don't have to waste time telling them.

Hmmmmmm.....

knee_strike Says:

"Terrible audio and lighting"

Perhaps phrased harshly, but yes, the lighting and audio leave something to be desired. Of course, Saku's budget is his own pocket, so he definitely gets a pass.

knee_strike (also) Says:

"Chivas and America are the two biggest professional soccer teams in . . . Mexico"

So, Mexico has a soccer team called America? Um, ok. Thanks.

"don't call yourself a goofy White boy."

Obviously, you haven't seen my videos. I've been goofy since way back, and i just asked around here at the office, and it's been confirmed that i am caucasian.

@Rex

Yeah its a thing that Mexicans have its kinda like a Lakers/Celtics thing but with less awesomeness/intensity/action/memorable moments/entertainment than you get with nba. Idk what it is but when youre raised on beans and rice they somehow make you choose a side even when you don't even like the sport.
