Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez II on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas

by Matt Erickson and John Morgan | source: mmajunkie.com

Junior Dos Santos may have a bigger bone to pick with Alistair Overeem than with Cain Velasquez, but that will have to wait.

Dos Santos, the UFC's heavyweight champion, is expected to next defend his title Dec. 29 at the promotion's year-end pay-per-view in Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White late Saturday confirmed the planned matchup following the post-event news conference for UFC 150 in Denver.

While the UFC's traditional year-end show has not yet been announced, the heavyweight title tilt will headline what is likely to be UFC 155 at either the MGM Grand Garden Arena or Mandalay Bay Events Center.

He won the K1 tournament, and he sat in SF... And he did it all by cheating his ass off. He hasn't beaten anybody with his striking. He couldn't even strike with Werdum, the guy who JDS smashed and chased out of the UFC (to face the easier competition in SF, like Overoids).I guess you could say he got the better of Mirko, by smashing his balls over and over. That doesn't really warrant a shot at JDS though. Just my opinion.

Not gonna read through every page because it's mostly all Overeem this n that.CAIN > JDS 3rd or 4th either by TKO or Sub.And after that CAIN > Overeem 1st round GNP

  You want an answer Corky?  It's because he has not lost in 5 years and 12 MMA fights, recently beat Werdum who was ranked 2-3 in the world at HW, is very marketable, and hasn't been KTFO by the champ in 1 minute in the past 10 months.  He has also won the prestigious K1 tournament.  Unnastand?

Tranny... Don't start crying because you're embarrassed that you can't answer a simple question. Should be such an easy question too. Why does Overoids deserve a title shot more than Cain?? You're answer is to drool on yourself and get angry while your eyes glaze over.

No answer. It's okay buddy. Nobody can give me a straight answer.Sorry, MMA is not wretard-wrestling. You don't pick a title contender because you think they look sexy with their shirt off. You can't answer, because Overoids has done absolutely nothing in MMA. Other than knee death-bed Lesnar in the colostomy bag and then get busted for cheating.You can't tell me why Overoids deserves a title shot, because you know he doesn't deserve it. You just think he looks good with his shirt off, so you want to see it. That's not how it works in a real pro sport though...

Who is this Overoids you speak of. I mentioned no such character, derp.

The best answer I got for that question so far, is that "Overeem showed really great striking in Pride" "In those 30 fights where he got knocked out every time, his striking was great, but he gassed in the first round each time". That's why he deserves a title shot.

Wow. Do not want.On second thought,I do want it just to see JDS shuck Cain's take down attempt off and then blast him into Bolivian.He will be years away from a title shot after that and the push for a UFC in Mexico City will go right down the toilet, all for rushing him right back into title contention.
