Tonight (10/23/10), a special fight is going to take place. Two monsters will meet in an all out war to claim the number one spot for Heavyweight Champion of the world. I have long awaited this match. Not because I just want to see knees, elbows, punches flying around everywhere, but because this is that good old story about the little engine that could. Brock Lesnar (former WWE superstar, who holds a record of 5-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC, will defend against top contender Cain Velasquez (8-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC).
Lesnar, who is currently expected to win by a small spread will be out to prove once more why he is the man. Cain is out to prove that he has what it takes and wants to become the first Mexican Heavyweight champion in the UCF. Not too long ago, Lesnar was out for about a year due to a near-death experience, however, returned to fight Carwin and won the match. Velasques earned his title shot against Lesnar due to an impressive knockout of all-time great Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 110. Velasques has waited ever since while awaiting the outcome against the Lesnar-Carwin mathup.
So the question is, who will win? I predict that Velasques will win against Lesnar due to technical knockout. I believe that, while Lesnar is powerfull and bigger than Cain, he will be too slow to handle the technique, speed, and cardio of Cain. Cain has fought many prominent opponents much bigger than him and quicker than him and has defeated them still looking unscathed at the end of the fight. If Brock handles Cain properly from the beginning, it could be a fast end to Cain’s undefeated record streak. However, if Cain can keep up, he will certainly have more gas in the tank to keep the pressure on and keep Brock busy. I suspect that this will be the case and we will have a brand new UFC Champion who will defend his title for a very long time. See you guys there!
