Junior dos Santos: Cain Velasquez 'hits like a girl'

USA TODAY Sports

Former UFC Heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos is mocking Cain Velasquez, the man who beat him up and took his title at UFC 155. The two are expected to have a third bout at UFC 166 in October.

Junior dos Santos is ratcheting up the trash talk in his rivalry with Cain Velasquez. The two have split a pair of fights with JDS KO'ing Cain at UFC on Fox 1 and Cain battering JDS en route to a unanimous 5-round decision win at UFC 155 last December.

Dos Santos made his comments to the Brazilian media (translation via Kevin Iole):

After my last fight with Velasquez, I was too bloated. My face was completely deformed. I went to the hospital. I had no cuts against Cain Velasquez. He hits like a girl. We say in boxing about people who 'catch,' who have that punch that you really feel or that cuts your face or knocks you down. He hit me a lot during the five rounds, but did not open anything, although I finished very swollen and had to go to the hospital.

Perhaps something was lost in translation.
