Cain Velasquez (Pictured) has been waiting 13 long months to avenge the only blemish on his résumé and recapture the heavyweight crown. Unfortunately for Velasquez, he’ll be entering UFC 155 tonight as an underdog against reigning champ Junior dos Santos. Velasquez is a slight -155 dark horse against the man who put him to sleep last November. “Cigano,” meanwhile, checks in as nearly a 2-to-1 odds-on favorite.
