UFC 188: Velasquez vs. Werdum


Tonight is UFC 188 with the main card title match for the heavyweight championship

between the returning champ and my guy Cain Velasquez and the reining interim champion Fabricio Werdum.

The first time I saw Cain fight was for the heavyweight title against Brock (lol) Lesner and after the beat down Lesner took from Velasquez I was hooked on this man, and is he a force to be reckoned with. Standing 6’0 tall he maintained and held 6’4 Junior dos Santos against the fence for five rounds landing blow after blow, and a few elbows in their second match. Cain also has the best cardio in the UFC, no one can match it. Cain’s insane cardio has been a plus in being able to go five rounds and not get “gassed” while maintaining his title defenses.  

Is Cain Velasquez superhuman? Seriously after five rounds you would think a fighter got to be tired and breathing heavy, but he isn’t. 

Cain may look a little pudgy but he is incredibly strong and I envision him putting Werdum up against the fence and working his dirty boxing, then dropping Werdum for a takedown, to land some massive ground-and-pound, and use his elbows to the face. Anyone remember what Cain did to Bigfoot Silva in 2012?


Now Werdum’s I’ll admit I have only see one of his fights, so I can’t comment objectively, though I’ve read that Werdum has rapidly improved on his stand-up and could pose Cain some major problems.  Sports analyst say Werdum lacks a true KO punch and I just don’t think he can corral Cain into any dangerous Muay Thai positions.

My prediction Velasquez TKO/KO 1st Round!

We shall see soon…

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites.

By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us.

  1. Some women are sexually aroused by pugilism. Not many women apprectiate the finer poinys of the noble art. Boxing is vicious and dangerous. A good heavyweight fight interests men and arouses women. There, I said it.
