Cormier: Velasquez will be a champion soon
UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier believes that his teammate Cain Velasquez will return the UFC title in the nearest future: “You will see the vintage, you will see the best. Nothing changed. He is still good, still fast. The fight is still with him. You must remember that all this time he helped me to prepare.
“Very soon he will become a champion. As soon as I finish my career, he will become a champion. The only problem is that the UFC must know that Cain is now healthy, and they can trust him,” said Cormier.
His next bout the 36-year-old Velasquez will have on February 17 against Francis Ngannou. This fight will be the first for Velasquez since July 2016, when he beat Travis Brown by technical knockout in the first round.
