Cain Velasquez Talks Training Camp, Cormier vs. Johnson, and Staying Out of Trouble

Luke Thomas interviews Cain Velasquez for SB Nation.

Velasquez talks about how difficult it was watching Mark Hunt step in for him to fight Werdum, defends his training methods, and gives his take on how he has stayed out of the kind of trouble Jones finds himself in – emphasising the value of being humble, and associating only with family and trusted friends. He also gives his pick for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

Interestingly, Velasquez agrees that Cormier vs. Johnson could be won based on who dominates in the clinch, and thinks Cormier matches up well due to how hard he is to hit.

Good interview.
