Dana White confirmed after UFC 159 that with a win over Mark Hunt at UFC 160 Junior Dos Santos will fight Cain Velasquez for the third time.  Both fighters are clearly the two best in the division and in my opinion will fight five times in their career.  In their first match JDS knocked out Velasquez in just over a minute of the first round in the UFC’s debut on FOX.  However in their next bout Velasquez gave Dos Santos a very lop sided beating, and one that left many people, including myself, wondering how JDS made it through all twenty five minutes.  Dos Santos is yet to compete since that fight at UFC 155 and it is a big question how he will rebound from that loss.  Both guys will fight at UFC 160 on May 25th and it will be a great determinant on how their next fight could go. Mark Hunt talks about how he got the JDS fight on the MMA Hour Cormier and Cain hanging with 49er star Aldon Smith

We saw multiple fights end early, and Gian Villante and Ovince St. Preux. Villante was poked in the eye, and when the...

Dana White UFC 159 Post Fight Scrum

Cain Velasquez Fan Friendly

UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez takes the time to snap a pic with one of his many fans.  Cain will be taking on Bigfoot Silva in a rematch at UFC 160 and if you ask me it will go similar to the first fight.  Cain dismantled the giant Brazilian at UFC 146, but regardless of the previous fight Silva is coming off a big win over Alistair Overeem and Velasquez wants to stay active...

Daniel Cormier could get instant UFC 205 title shot
