Velasquez dominates Dos Santos to regain Heavyweight Championship

 

For Cain Velasquez, revenge was a dish served cold. One year after suffering a 64-second knockout loss at the hands of Junior Dos Santos, Velasquez decided to spread out his beating, going all 25 minutes in a one-sided romp over his rival at UFC 155.

It was so dominant that the judges scored it 50-45, 50-43, 50-44 for Velasquez, who became only the third multi-time heavyweight champion in UFC history, after Randy Couture and Tim Sylvia.

By the end of the violence, dos Santos was cut, bruised and had a serious hematoma on the right side of his face.

"Tonight he was better than me," dos Santos said afterward.

im a fan of both so was happy and disappointed at the same time just like i was the first fight.as far as jack slack's article, he's def got some great striking insight and good dicussion for us but like anyone, can overanalyze and miss certain things. i believe he used the Kongo fight for example which was ages ago and where Cain has improved since. Not that Cain is now imune to getting hit but his head movement is pretty good and sometimes its just who gets who first or who dictates.there was ironically another article about JDS' holes in his striking which Cain could exploit and did. I believe that writer focused more on the boxing than the combindation of boxing and wrestling and were the threat of the td is a major factor that affects the boxing but another view on the holes of the other fighter.in the end, Cain did what he had to do and JDS failed.

Soooooooooooo happy with Cain's win. Funny how there was just an article up about Cain's inability at avoiding hits. And the best boxer in the HW Division couldn't get a square shot on him.Also, proof that any shot to back of the ear is going to take most people out.

First of all Juniors sponsored by nike, and what the fuck makes you think Junior deserves an immediate rematch after getting completely destroyed for all five rounds? Him having enough heart to last that destruction doesn't warrant a title shot.

I think the extra muscle was an impairment to him

Yeah. Because those matches were so cut and dry. Clearly every time they fight it'd be the same outcome. I bet you knew how every moment of the fight was going to go months in advance. I'm sure if Dos Santos landed the first solid shot the fight still would have turned out the same. And if Lauzon clipped Miller on the chin there is absolutely no chance he could have took his back and finish him. I mean it isn't like JDS started defending take downs again after he recovered a bit. Lauzon certainly wasn't doing any better in the 2nd half of the fight even with blood draining into his eyes.
