Found October 21, 2013 on Tito Couture:
Cain Velasquez had another lopsided victory over former champ Junior Dos Santos this weekend and two days after he looks pretty good.  Junior is the second toughest guy on the planet so anytime you spend twenty three plus minutes in a cage with him you are going to have some cuts and bruises to show for it.  Congrats to Cain as he showed that he is clearly the better fighter and hope he is enjoying some very well deserved time off with his family.

Werdum likely next up for Velasquez

Velasquez extinguishes rivalry

There is a moment when Cain Velasquez changes. It seems to come only as he drapes a small Mexican flag around his right glove and his eyes narrow his focus as he begins his walk to the cage. The look on his face doesn't quite appear to be confidence or concentration. Simmering beneath is a quiet indignation, almost a resentment that an opponent would dare try to challenge him...

Junior dos Santos doesn’t remember most of the fight, thought he was KO’d in second round

Well, how’s that for punching like a girl? In a message sent through, JDS has expressed his disappointment once again by being mangled by Cain Velasquez. What’s even more disturbing, is the fact that JDS thought he was knocked out in the second round. Apparently, he gave this information to his corner, who was shocked. They felt that JDS was fighting on “autopilot”...

Fight Aftermath-Cain Velasquez And Junior Dos Santos III

UFC 166 this past weekend in Houston, Texas was certainly one of the best cards I have seen in recent memory.

Who doesn’t want the autograph of the baddest man on the planet?  Cain did work again tonight, as he completely dismantled JDS for the second time.  JDS showed a crazy amount of heart and maybe for his future health should of thrown in the towel.  But these guys are warriors and until they are waved off, they are not going to quit.  Lombard had himself a pretty good night himself...
