We should just go ahead and make sure that Daniel Cormier is either the one interviewing Cain Velasquez or included in the conversation whenever the heavyweight champ has a microphone in front of him because he brings out the best in his friend and teammate.

Joining Cormier on the set of UFC Tonight, Velasquez discusses his victory over rival Junior dos Santos at UFC 166 including sharing his thoughts on whether the fight should have been stopped earlier than it was and if he felt referee Herb Dean over his shoulder when the bout nearly ended in the third round.

Velasquez also offers up his opinion on Fabricio Werdum, the man many believe is next in line to challenge for the heavyweight title.

Check out the champ’s interview with his coach and teammate, and be sure to stay tuned to for all your UFC news, information, and analysis.
