Cain Velasquez says fighting, while it still holds his interest will not be a big part of 2017 for him and probably won’t even be any part at all…
I’ll let him elaborate on it more.
“This year? Probably not,” Velasquez said. “We’ll see. I’m close. I’m not there yet but I’m close. Focusing on this time as far as the baby we have coming along. I want to be there for that. He’s due in November, so it’s been a good process of healing and being with the family.”
“I want to be 100% ready for the fans. I need to stop messing around and coming back too early. You know what I mean? I can’t do that. I can’t afford that anymore. I gotta be 100% ready to come back.”
“That’s not up to me. I’ll ask for whoever. We haven’t talked. But I’m with the family and just recuperating still.”
