The Octagon is notorious for ending every year with a bang. The company is well on its way for 2012 by having the highly-anticipated rematch between heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez headline UFC 155.
What better way to promote the December 29th show than with a stellar billboard? After releasing some mundane event posters of late, they really turned it up a notch for “Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II.”
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the extravaganza.
Here is the show’s current lineup:
Chris Leben vs. Karlos Vemola
Erik Perez vs. Byron Bloodworth
Brad Pickett vs. Eddie Wineland
Erik Koch vs. Ricardo Lamas
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)

As a fellow ASU alumni, I root pretty hard for Cain Velasquez in the octagon. It kinda sucks because I love JDS as well and I think II will be a lot more than one hay maker. Either way, we get the winner of this fight vs Alistair so it’s all good.
