Cain aims for another Bigfoot beatdown

Although Cain Velasquez is a heavy favorite in his heavyweight title defense at UFC 160, the champion says there's no chance he would ever take Antonio Silva lightly.

The last guy to do that was Alistair Overeem, and the man-mountain known as ``Bigfoot'' knocked him out and seized this title shot Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.

``I don't see this as anything less than a hard, grueling fight, and that's what I'm expecting,'' Velasquez said.

Yet Velasquez (11-1) realizes almost everybody expects him to wreck Silva (18-4) just as thoroughly as he did one year ago in a first-round knockout at UFC 146. Time will tell.

Earlier on the UFC 160 card, former heavyweight champion Dos Santos returns to the octagon against Mark Hunt.
