Injured champ Velasquez addresses Dos Santos criticism, interim-title talk

LAS VEGAS – Despite the surprising protests of top contender Junior Dos Santos, UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez insists his recent  surgery for a torn rotator cuff was not only a last resort but also completely necessary.

And while initial reports have suggested Velasquez may be out for up to one year, he remains optimistic he’ll need no more than six months to make a full recovery.

That said, Velasquez said he’d support UFC officials if they implement an interim title.
