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

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.
