Cain Velasquez on CP24 BreakfastTV – Watch more Funny Videos
While in Toronto for a media tour Thursday, UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez made some interesting and revealing roundabout comments regarding his American Kickboxing Academy teammate Josh Koscheck‘s chances against the promotion’s welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre next month when the pair meet for the second time at UFC 124 in Montreal.
"[GSP is] one of the best out there. His style of fighting is strong and I think he is going to be the champion for a long time," Velasquez told the hosts of CP24 Breakfast. "But guys are always coming after him."
In Cain’s defense, he likely didn’t think Kos would see the show considering the interview took place at 4:00 am California time and it was aired by a local station in Ontario that doesn’t broadcast to the U.S.
Or maybe he’s been watching Josh crank the heel volume up to 11 on this season of TUF and is rooting for the French Canadian to teach his brash teammate some humility.
Whatever the case, Koscheck could learn a thing or two from Cain when it comes to humbleness.
During the same interview when asked if he’s afraid of losing, Velasquez explained that nobody is unbeatable and that he doesn’t worry about the inevitability that he will one day be handed the first blemish on his record.
"I never have that fear in me that you might lose it. Everybody loses, it’s just a matter of time," Velasquez explained. "Just keep improving and keep evolving at your sport, that’s all you can do."
Spoken like a true champion.
It’s good to see that Cain has come into his own and is really getting comfortable doing media appearances like these. He’s like Brock’s antithesis.
