Walkout Music:

Cain Velasquez was a very successful collegiate wrestler, Velasquez earned All American honors twice at powerhouse Arizona State University. Cain was also a Junior College National Champion and 2-time 5A state champion in Arizona. Velasquez has transitioned into the world of mma with great early success. Before joining with the UFC Cain was having trouble finding people to fight him, going from 2 fights in 2006 to making his debut in the UFC in April of 2008 with 0 fights in 2007. With his current group of training partners at AKA he has nothing but improvement ahead of him. Velasquez's 5th career fight was first time he was taken out of the 1st round, defeating Denis Stojnic by strikes in the 2nd round. Following his fight he was not pleased with his performance, stating that he has to get back in the gym and continue to get better. It will be difficult for anyone to live up to what this kid has been hyped as, but time will tell if he really is the future of the heavyweight division.
