Cain Velasquez UFC 146For most of us, it would seem intimidating for almost anyone to fight a man named Bigfoot.

But for former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, who faces the six-foot-four, 265-pound Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 146 on Saturday night, he’s not intimidated at all.

“The size difference is not a big deal for me. I wrestled in college and the weight limit in college is 285 (pound), so I wrestled guys that are much bigger than me,” said Velasquez, who is six-foot-one, 240 pounds. That’s not to say he doesn’t respect Silva or his abilities.

“I’ve watched a lot of his fights. He’s one of the top heavyweights in the world. He’s a tough dude.”

    Cain needs to put Bigfoot away in domination fashion. If JDS loses tonight to Mir it could really shake up the division and make for some interesting match ups

    I hope Bigfoot turn this Brown Pride thug into a Brown sh*t stain!
