Cain Velasquez reclaimed the UFC heavyweight championship Saturday night with a lopsided unanimous decision over Junior Dos Santos in UFC 155. Velasquez (11-1) took control of the fight early in the rematch, putting the only man who has given him a career loss to the ground with a big right hand midway through the first round.  Dos Santos (15-2) never recovered from that first-round blow. "I was so tired, but I had to endure," Velasquez said. "My coaches and everybody helped me so much. He's tough, too. ... It feels so good to get this. This is my wife's Christmas present. I promised her I would do this." The three judges scored Velasquez 50-45,50-44 and 50-43.   "His game was very effective, and tonight he was better than me," Dos Santos said. "It's not usual for me to take a punch, but he walks forward all the time. His takedowns, his grappler game is very effective, so congratulations for him."
