Cain Velasquez doesn't think he is Number 1

"We won't know unless we get in the same organization. Who's to say that I'm No. 1 or they're No. 1 if we haven't fought yet?" - Cain Velasquez

Good to see him giving props to the Strikeforce heavyweights. It's nice to see a guy talking with some sense as well.

Instead of Dana White who insists that everyone in Strikeforce is a can.

would have been great if the UFC entered a heavyweight in the Strikeforce tournament like when Chuck entered the Pride GP all those years ago.

Shame it never happened, but no way Dana would risk his heavyweight not winning. He has a lot to lose and relatively little to gain (his organisation is so much bigger than Strikeforce already his fighters are perceived to be the best by the bulk of fans just by brand association)

Hopefully what Dana will do is pick up a couple of the most successful Strikeforce heavyweights when their current contracts run out (overeem and bigfoot perhaps) so we can see a few of the hypothetical match ups play out.

Cain is one of the most humble fighters out there, he lets his performances do the talking. Who is to say he is number 1??? The majority of the fans and industry insiders, thats who.

At the end of the day, the rankings mean nothing. He has the gold around his waist and has never lost a round, nevermind a fight. Thats reality, rankings are just what other ppl think.

Did you see Cain beat Kongo? He got cracked multiple times. Velasquez has amazing recovery.

Cain/Kongo showed he can take shots... but can he take an Ubershot?!

Can Overeem take one of Cains shots to the chin is an even bigger question to me. He is the one that has wilted in the past to fighters that pressure him. Thats what Cain is all about, relentless, neverending, never slowing down, pressure.


Would be a great fight if Overeem gets thru the GP and proves his worth. With k1 possiblely in $ troubles along with Dream, we just may find out sooner than later.

Doesn't mean he will be able to handle the power and accuracy of overeem. I think it is safe to say overeem is a much better striker than Kongo, unless we are talking shots to the nuts.
