Report: UFC Heading to San Jose for ‘Velasquez vs. Dos Santos’ in November

Lorenzo Fertitta has revealed that Cain Velasquez‘s first heavyweight title defense against Junior Dos Santos is slated for UFC 138 (November 19th; HP Pavilion; San Jose, CA), according to a new LA Times report. It would be the UFC’s first event at the “Shark Tank,” which has been the longtime home-base for Strikeforce events. It’s a natural fit, considering Velasquez’s affiliation with San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy.

Velasquez vs. Dos Santos was previously rumored for UFC 136, October 8th in Houston, but Velasquez’s recovery from shoulder surgery has taken slightly longer than expected. UFC 136 still doesn’t have any major fights officially booked — which could be a problem, considering that the next UFC Fan Expo is pegged to the event.

Velasquez and Dos Santos have both compiled outstanding 7-0 runs in the Octagon. Velasquez has been inactive since beating the crap out of former champ Brock Lesnar last October, while Dos Santos just finished demonstrating to the world how much heart Shane Carwin has.

UFC 138: Ethnocentrism

Fuck, I'm going to Houston for 136 and the expo and it seems like they're just booking awesome main events for everything BUT Houston. What the fuck is left for this show? Aldo Vs. Florian?
