    Come on Cain Velasquez,kick his ass like u did last time then it’s big country Nelson,big country wants ur title,kick his ass as well too,Arribaa Los Mexicanos

    • dgs

      I hope Dos Santos KO’s Cain “Brown Pride” Velasquez in the first round, just like he did the first time they met. Send Cain and his Mexican flag back to Mexico, where they both belong.

      Brazilians all the way.

      • Bob Smith

        Dos Santos is Brazilian you f***ing moron. Are you only racists toward Mexicans cuz both are Latino

        • dgs

          No sh!t he’s Brazilian, you dumb a$$. Did you not you read my last sentence?

          I don’t care if they’re both Latin, can’t stand most Mexicans. I have plenty of Brazilian friends however (many who I train with), some of the best people you’ll ever meet.

          • Marcus Miles

            Im sure most Mexicans can’t stand you either. I cant stand ignorant trash.

        • firesiot

          try reading the comment before you reply! moron! he said JDS is Brazilian!

  • dgs

    Damn!!! Did Dos Santos KO himself by landing on his head? That’s what the play-by-play infers.

    Regardless, Dos Santos was going to lose that fight unless he KO’d Cain, which with so little time left was probably not going to happen.

    F&ck I’m pissed. I was pulling for Dos Santos big time; wanted him to KO Cain in a vicious manner. These two will meet again someday, because Dos Santos is better than everyone else in the heavyweight division, and after he wins three or four more fights, he will have to fight Cain again because they’ll be no one else to fight.

    JDS will need at least 3 fights now before getting another shot..
