"They don’t want to set a fight with [Cain] Velasquez, for now it’s not interest for them. I was hoping for this fight because it makes total sense, but they don’t want it now... let’s wait and see... There are a lot of names I could confront, but I really don’t have a clue of who will it be my next opponent. [Roy Nelson] has shown he’s a very embattled fighter, is in a good moment on UFC and actually said he wanted to fight me... If it’s him or not, I don’t care.. I’ll be prepared to fight with whoever my opponent is and make it a good fight. I’m in a very good position and in a very special time on my career and, if that’s what God wants, I’ll have this opportunity to fight for the belt."

-Junior Dos Santos talks to Tatame.com about wanting to fight Cain Velasquez and not knowing what the UFC has in store for him next.

Penick's Analysis: The UFC wants to keep them separated right now to set them both up for Title fights, but with Nelson now facing Cheick Kongo in July I'm not sure who they'll put him in there with. Frank Mir might be a possibility, but I don't know if there are any others up at the top of the division that they'll really want to throw him in with unless they're looking to give him an easy victory to keep him occupied until his Title shot.
