Video: Cain Velasquez Talks Recovery and Jon Jones

UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez talks about rehabbing his shoulder injury and the impressive Jon Jones. Cain Velasquez is currently targeted for a September return:
"Right now, doctor has me off of my sling and he says within three weeks he'll clear me to do some kind of light training. And then just kind of doing the rehab still, still just looking after it and getting the doctor check ups. The most extensive thing the doctor is having me do is light curls with the right arm. Light curls to get back the bicep strength and everything else but that's pretty much it. I really can't do anything."

"It would be great (to fight Jon Jones), I think he's a really talented fighter, he's impressive to watch. But right now, my focus right now is about getting 100% for myself right now and as far as fighting right now, it just seems so far away because I'm trying just to get in the gym and trying to train. But he's talented, he looks good in all his fights and he's going to be tough to beat."
