It’s time for the rubber match as UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez meets his rival and former champion Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC 166.
Velasquez (12-1) is a two time heavyweight champion who first captured the title with a technical knockout of Brock Lesnar at UFC 121 in October 2010. In his first title defense Velasquez would suffer a knockout loss to dos Santos in just 64 seconds at UFC on Fox 1 in November 2011. Velasquez would avenge that loss to reclaim the title with a dominating five round decision over dos Santos last December at UFC 155.
UFC 166 takes place this Saturday, October 19th from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The main card will be shown on pay-per-view beginning at 10:00pm ET. The preliminary card will kick-off at approximately 6:15pm ET with four fights on Facebook before moving to Fox Sports 1 at 8:00pm ET with four more bouts.
