Cain Velasquez – MMA star on the rise

So what happens when you knockout the most feared man in MMA?

You become a star and that’s exactly what’s happening to Cain Velasquez.

After his dominating performance against the heavily favored Brock Lesnar, Cain Velasquez is all the rage in the UFC. He also made history by becoming the first ever Mexican heavyweight champion in MMA history, opening doors in the Latino market for the rapidly growing UFC. The new champ displayed great ability and composure in the octagon. Here are 5 reasons why challengers should beware of Cain:

STRENGTH: He’s hard to bring down and keep down (just ask Brock Lesnar). Cain has the wrestling skills to counter and get back on his feet where he is best at.

DEVASTATING STRIKING ABILITY: He has superb Boxing skills and is at his best when on his feet striking the opponent. Sports Science recorded his punch as the strongest ever recorded.

QUICKNESS: He’s a 245 lbs., 6’2 heavyweight, but he moves like a lightweight.

MENTAL TOUGHNESS: Cain shows great composure when under duress and weathered. After a bull rush from Brock Lesnar, he was on his back early, but was never shaken. He weathered the storm and scored the knockout.

SMARTS: When asked how he felt about the results of the fight, he said, “I need to keep getting better.”  The sky is the limit for Cain Velasquez who stands at a perfect 9-0 and is on top of the MMA world right now.

Considering the huge Mexican fan base and Cain being the first Mexican heavyweight champion ever, Cain Velasquez has a chance at greatness. This is only the beginning for Cain, who plans to take over the heavyweight division.
