Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez ll Set for UFC 152

The seemingly inevitable rematch now has a date in place.

Immediately following UFC on FX 3, Dana White revealed his plan to have the heavyweight championship rematch headline UFC 152 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  As of right now, a welterweight bout between BJ Penn and Rory MacDonald is also scheduled for the event.

When the two first met at UFC on FOX, the fight was a relatively anticlimactic affair that saw Junior Dos Santos wreck Cain Velasquez one minute and four seconds into the first round. While most fans weren’t clamoring for an immediate rematch, it was obvious that the two young heavyweights would meet up again.

This became even more obvious after UFC 146, which saw both men dominate their opponents on their way to early stoppages. In the main event of the evening, champion Junior Dos Santos defended his title against Frank Mir with a spectacular second round TKO. Despite Frank Mir’s best efforts to get the fight to the ground, the only time he managed to get it there was when he was dropped by the heavy hands of Junior Dos Santos.

And as great as Dos Santos looked against Mir, Cain Velasquez looked even more dominant against Strikeforce veteran Antonio Silva. Silva was at no point in their fight a threat to the former champion, being taken down early and beaten to a pulp before the fight was mercifully stopped at 3:36 of the first round.

UFC 152 is expected to go down on September 22. We’ll keep you up to date as more fights get announced for this card.

Despite Mir's best efforts?!?! He tried one take down and it was sloppy at best. I know you're trying to put a positive spin on it but come on, at no point was Mir in that fight.

With all due respect, Mir attempted only one sloppy, desperate takedown because he was getting his ass kicked by the far superior fighter all night. Just because it wasn't competitive doesn't mean Mir wasn't trying- it's just proof that JDS is that good.

Yeah, and if that were Cigano Vs. Big Foot, he would've been dropped with one punch in 30 secs with that big ass jaw of his. Just sayin. Give Cain one more match to earn his rematch. But I guess for Dos Santos there is no one else that he hasn't destroyed already.

Cain was recovering from serious shoulder surgery and a long layoff . This probably led to his slow start against Jr. A slow start is disaster against JDS. Until then Cain was destroying all of his opponents. With all of that ,I feel Cain is deserving of the rematch, is JDS, Cain. then all the other HWs. Also looking forward to Penn (the old guard) facing MacDonald (a young gun) an excellent co-main event
