While still in the octagon this Saturday in Canada, an announcement previously made by Dana White was set in stone. Having won his UFC 131 headliner against Shane Carwin, Junior Cigano stood side by side with Cain Velasquez, the current heavyweight champion and his next opponent.
“I train wrestling now too, so, be careful, my opponents!” joked Cigano in an interview with Joe Rogan, to then go on to address his next fight.
“I have a lot of respect for Velasquez but, Cain, I’m coming to get you!”
Standing in the octagon, Velasquez maintained the humble stance that carried him to the UFC title.
“I respect Cigano. He showed great skills. I’m dying to fight someone like him.”
