Cain Velasquez Ready for Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira or Shane Carwin

Cain Velasquez was supposed to face Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 108, but "Big Nog" recently had to pull out due to a severe staph infection. And with Brock Lesnar's recent health troubles keeping the heavyweight champion on the sidelines for an indefinite period of time, Velasquez told FanHouse that he doesn't know if his next opponent will be Nogueira or Shane Carwin and whether an interim title will be on the line.

The undefeated heavyweight contender also talked about his recent victory over Ben Rothwell, dealing with the media and his dream of fighting in Mexico. Check out the video interview below.
