Weren't both Sonnen and Henderson Olympic wrestlers? Still probably not on this guys level though.......?

Yeh, that's the prob with a lot of grapplers also, they have a couple MMA fights, but never undertake a career in it.

he has 4 golds at the world titles and 1 silver in 2006 at 120kg, which is about 265 pounds, olympic gold medallist!! at beijing and he is cuban and will train with Lombard and Alves, i think this guy already will at least be a top contender lets just hope he's in the ufc before strikeforce tries to ruin him.

I thought UFC rejects and guys who like their freedom go to Strikeforce. Was I wrong?

There is "no freedom" in UFC that's for sure

Did Velasquez not prove that its not all about wrestling though?

He personifies the term "its not thi size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog"

Cain is a bit different as he is not wrestler and boxer like most Heavyweights. He is a wrestler and kickboxer. I think that makes the difference

Cain Velasquez has proven to everyone that technique beats raw power 9 times out of 10. Even Brock Lesnar proved that to some degree when he beat Shane Carwin.

Scary looking dude, and, ulike other big men, he has some nice credentials: world champion, olympic champion, training boxing in Cuba, where boxing is like a national sport... then going to ATT.
Two things need to happen for him:
- start a rigurous conditioning training, adapted to MMA
- STRIKING, STRIKING, STRIKING...ne needs to learn how to box, and more important, like Lesnar demonstrated us...he needs to learn how to take a punch and how to react when getting hit.

If he succeds is this, he should do very well imo.

BELIEVE!
