A year ago today, the MMA community was buzzing about the first time a UFC bout would be aired on a big network in prime time. More than 8 million people watched the bout between current heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, but they were only treated to a little more than 60 seconds of fighting. Velasquez (10-1) rebounded with a win over Antonio ”˜Bigfoot’ Silva at UFC 146, but he admits that the loss to dos Santos(15-1) still bothers him.

Velasquez told MMAfighting he wants to avenge the loss, and could foresee a rivalry developing between him and dos Santos:

“It’s (fight with dos Santos) been eating at me for a while,” Velasquez admitted through clenched teeth at a recent media luncheon. “[The loss] definitely did happen, and it hurt. It sucked. I’ve been waiting for a while to get revenge back.”

“It possibly could be a rivalry, You’ve just got to take one fight at a time, see what happens. If we have more than two (fights against each other), then we have more than two.”

Velasquez, who is no stranger to injuries, also talked about the role that injuries are playing in the current landscape of the UFC.

“It’s just so easy to get hurt in this sport,” Velasquez explained. “Whether it be cuts, your joints, bones, everything can mess up at any given time. The way that we train is just so much like a real fight…You definitely don’t know (who’s going to be on the card until fight night). Because guys, we’re going to just be in the gym training our butts off, and that’s it. We don’t worry about getting hurt in the gym. We just don’t. We go in, and we just try to get the best workout we can, compete against our teammates, because that’s what we’re doing. We’re always trying to be the best even inside the gym. It’s just so easy to get hurt.”

Cain Velasquez will face off with the Junior dos Santos at UFC 155 on in Las Vegas for the heavyweight championship on Dec. 29. Dos Santos beat Velasquez in their first bout by knockout in 64 seconds of the first round.
