In an interview with ESPN yesterday, Dana White confirmed that Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez will meet in their highly-anticipated rubber match at UFC 166, which goes down on October 19th from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. We now go to Joe Rogan for a reaction…
After reclaiming his title at UFC 155 by beating the stuffing out of the very man who took said title at UFC on FOX 1, Velasquez was finally able to make his first successful title defense at UFC 160 in May with a quick beatdown of Antonio Silva. Dos Santos also saw success at UFC 160, spin-kicking the hopes and dreams of PRIDE fanboys right out the goddamned window in the third round of his battle with Mark “Blunderbuss” Hunt.
Who do you like for this third meeting of heavyweight titans, Potato Nation. More importantly, where do you think Dos Santos vs. Velasquez III will rank on your list of all-time greatest trilogies? Up there with Wandy vs. Rampage or, God forbid, among the likes of Sylvia vs. Arlovski or Shamrock vs. Ortiz?
