Velasquez retains title, stops Dos Santos in fifth

 

The UFC 166 main event featured the third fight between Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez for the UFC heavyweight title. The trilogy was tied at a fight a piece.

This time, Cain Velasquez got his finish.

In an absolutely brutal conclusion to their trilogy, Cain Velasquez finished Junior Dos Santos in the fifth and final round Saturday night at Houston's Toyota Center. The main event of UFC 166 was stopped at 3:09 of the final round as Velasquez retained his UFC heavyweight championship.

For quite some time, it appeared the bout was going to be a repeat of their second fight, one in which Velasquez dominated the bout to regain the title he had lost to dos Santos, but dos Santos went the distance. But it wasn't quite meant to be. The final exchange came when dos Santos, game until the end, went to take a choke to the mat, slipped, hit his head off the mat, and found himself open for a flurry by the champion.

Fedor, or a type of fighter like Fedor (good luck finding that), is the answer to Cain's style of fighting.

Excellent fight!  I don't know who is next for either fighter since no one can beat them, except each other.  I would have liked to see JDS vs DC, but he is moving down to take on Jones. I just don't see anyone else in the HW division who can compete with JDS.
