CAIN VELASQUEZ OUT FOR 6-8 MONTHS, JUNIOR DOS SANTOS DOESN’T PLAN ON WAITING
UFC heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez has apparently suffered a shoulder injury that will see him sidelined for six to eight months.
Promotion president, Dana White subsequently confirmed the news following Wednesday’s UFC 125 press conference at the MGM Grand Hotel.
“Yep, it’s true,” White gloomily responded when asked if Velasquez would have to be shelved. He said the summer of 2011 would hopefully bring Velasquez’s return.
Junior Dos Santos’ manager, Ed Soares, said that the top contender in the heavyweight division will not be waiting for Velasquez to return before fighting again.
“He is not going to wait six months,” said Soares
Dos Santos last fought in August when he defeated Roy Nelson by unanimous decision at UFC 117 in Oakland. The Brazilian would end up sitting out almost a year between fights if he waits for Velasquez to return.
