Junior Dos Santos puts his UFC Heavyweight title on the line Saturday night against Cain Velasquez at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
Billed as one of the top rematches in recent years, Dos Santos originally captured his belt from Velasquez in November of last year with a vicious first round knockout in the first 1:04.
Velasquez didn’t fold after his first career loss, and took on and was victorious over the legendary Antonio Silva with a TKO in May. After 11 career fights, the 30-year-old is 10-1 with nine KOs.
Dos Santos, a native of Brazil, has a reputation as one of the strongest and most devastating punchers in all of UFC, evidenced by his 11 career KOs.
