1 UFC 155: Cain Velasquez mauls Junior dos Santos to win back UFC heavyweight title

LAS VEGAS – Cain Velasquez put on a dominant performance reminiscent of his title-winning effort in 2010 over Brock Lesnar, routing Junior dos Santos Saturday to regain the UFC heavyweight title before a raucous crowd in the MGM Grand Garden.


Dos Santos won the title 13 months ago by knocking out Velasquez in just 64 seconds. But in the rematch at UFC 155 on Saturday, it was never close. Velasquez won by scores of 50-45, 50-44 and 50-43, delivering what he said was a late Christmas present for his wife, Michelle.
Velasquez repeatedly took dos Santos down and hurt him early with a massive right hand. Velasquez tore into him. Cain Velasquez kicks Junior dos Santos in the face. 



 Dos Santos staggered back from a right hand early in the first round and never really got back into the fight. His right eye was mangled from the constant punishment he was taking.
Velasquez, who insisted that the outcome would be different in the rematch, showed his legendary cardiovascular ability. He pushed dos Santos farther than the Brazilian was able to go.
To his credit, dos Santos hung on. He was almost stopped in the first round, but never gave up and made it to the finish.
