Cain Velasquez’s Jiu-Jitsu

Could Saturday’s fight end on the ground, with a well-timed submission? Most don’t think so. But Jiu-Jitsu, as always, will be a vital piece in the war between heavyweights Cain Velasquez, a brown belt and the champion, and challenger Junior Cigano, a Nogueira brothers brown belt.

Cain (Guerrilla JJ) has been through the ropes on the ground. He won the No-Gi Worlds absolute as a blue belt in 2007. He won the ultra heavy division, too. No small feat.

“I started Jiu-Jitsu when I started MMA, in 2007. he told GRACIEMAG.com reporter Nalty Jr. in conversation. “I don’t feel much difference between Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling. But once I learned Jiu-Jitsu my wrestling improved considerably. I have more control over positions. I feel the blend of Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling is great,” he adds.

Our GMA in Mexico and Renzo Gracie black belt Mario Delgado often trains with Cain; he told us what he thinks of the heavyweight’s Jiu-Jitsu. “He’s always looking to pass guard and mount to use his ground and pound. His Jiu-Jitsu game is really great and, with his wrestling pedigree, he’s always looking for top position.”

What about you, dear reader: will it end on the ground or start from there this Saturday?

    Dave Camarillo said he has a much more flowing game and stated in an interview with Sherdog that the only person he’s ever trained with who improved so quickly was BJ Penn. He said most guys keep training and they get better month to month, year to year. He said with both BJ and Cain, they get better literally everyday…noticeably better.
