Following the stunning first round knockout title win for Junior Dos Santos last night at UFC on Fox 1, Brock Lesnar commented on what he felt went wrong for the former Champ, and the man who defeated him to win the title, Cain Velasquez:
"Iâ€™ll tell ya, this heavyweight belt cannot stay in one manâ€™s hands for very long. My hatâ€™s off to Junior dos Santos, but thatâ€™s the truth. All it takes is the right punch at the right time and itâ€™s a matter of a minute and four seconds. I was very surprised that Cain was so apprehensive in this fight. To me, it looked like he was trying to feel it out a little bit and I thought, â€˜This guy should be pressuring him. He needs to be pressuring him._ Maybe it was a confidence thing. Maybe Cain wanted to come in and feel this thing out, but as it was shown, that was the wrong decision. He has a track record here too. Junior dos Santos is a knockout artist, okay? And Iâ€™ll be watching this and analyzing this, but I absolutely thought Cain should have pushed the fight and closed the distance and utilize what got him to the big event: His wrestling."
