When the UFC calls Cain Velasquez the baddest man on the planet, it's not just promotional hype. Velasquez was a two-time All-American wrestler for the ASU Sun Devils and a junior college national champion wrestler. He's the reigning heavyweight champion (11-1) and the first time he fought "Bigfoot" Silva (18-4), he blooded and beat him before the first round ended. It's hard not to remember that before their rematch at UFC 160 this weekend, but Silva knocked out Alistair Overeem something fierce and wants to even the score against Velasquez. May the best big man win. Should be a great night in the octagon.
