    Starting around 7:00 (in Portuguese).

    He was asked if he agrees with Javier Mendez, according to whom Cain, Cormier and himself are well above the rest of the division.

    His answer:

    "This is the heavyweight division. You can never say something like that. You can never underestimate anyone, you know what I mean? I really think we're in the top of the division right now, but everything can change from one minute to the next. Heavyweights are different, you see. When the punch connects, the fight is normally over or at least it paves the way for it to end. So it's really different, I believe there are a lot of good people in the heavyweight division and I'm really glad to be a part of this moment. I think it's the best moment of the heavyweight division ever... but of course, it lacks Fedor. He could be here, I'm a fan."

    I wish he was too

    Fight Mir, Barnett & rematch Werdum. Then he can retire. Again.

    JDS and Cain both have lots of respect for Fedor. Dana could learn a thing or two from them.

    Thats how you know Fedor.is the flippin' GOAT. When you have a great fighter in JDS saying that he is a fan. Such a shame that people think Fedor was a can kicker... and a wash up. Long live the last Emperor!!!!!!! War Fedor!!!! SLAVA FEDOR

    I hope the JDS wins but he's wrong. The UFC HW division is about as shallow as it's ever been.



    Proof? Cain's last 4 fights have been the same 2 people!



    After JDS all there is is Werdum and Barnett. Werdum already lost to JDS and Barnett who pisses clean may not be nearly as good. Barnett also lost to a newbie in Cormier.



    After Werdum and Barnett who is there? Travis Browne? Stefan Struve? Ugh! That's how shallow the UFC HW division is.


    He's right about Fedor being the GOAT though.

    Cain and JDS are so far ahead of the other HWTs right now, it's a shame there's no one else to test them. Let them fight each other every 5-6 months until someone else steps up.

    It cracked me up when Cain and JDS both said they thought Fedor was the best heavyweight ever before their last fight.

    Pretty impressive, coming from the number 2 and 3 p4p heavyweights ever

    Gotta love how the reporter asks the question in Portuguese and JDS starts answering in English. :icon_lol:
    Such a nice guy.

    BTW, thanks for sharing the video.

    Too bad Fedor picked Cain to win the trilogy. War JDS.
