The best unkept heavyweight secret in mixed martial arts was revealed Friday. The hotly anticipated rematch between champion Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez will headline UFC 155. Dos Santos easily disposed of former two-time champ Frank Mir at UFC 146 to post his first successful title defense. Prior to the 2ndRound TKO victory, dos Santos put Velasquez to sleep in just 64 seconds to capture the crown in November. The 27-year-old owns a 15-1 professional record and is perfect through his last 10 scraps. Velasquez was also victorious in the same Memorial Day weekend card. He destroyed Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in the opening round of their one-sided shootout to earn his shot at redemption. The only blemish on Velasquez’s 11-fight resume came at the hands, or should I say right hand, of 2Santos. The 265-pounders were supposed to rekindle their rivalry at UFC 152, but the sequel was scrapped for undisclosed reasons. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the December 29th festivities. Here is the card’s updated lineup: Chris Leben vs. Karlos Vemola Matt Mitrione vs. Phil DeFries Alan Belcher vs. Yushin Okami Chris Weidman vs. Tim Boetsch Joe Lauzon vs. Gray Maynard Phil Davis vs. Forrest Griffin Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos (UFC heavyweight champion)
