Video: Cain Velasquez vs Junior dos Dantos at UFC on FOX 1 'makes all the sense in the world'

Promotion President Dana White tells Karyn Bryant of MMA Heat that it always made the most sense to put the UFC heavyweight championship on the line with Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos at UFC on FOX 1:

"You want to go with your best foot forward for your first fight and to deliver the UFC heavyweight championship on free TV... like I've said, it's been my goal as a promoter to bring big fights back to TV and to bring big fights back to cities that they haven't been in in a long time. And if you gotta go with the UFC heavyweight championship, you definitely want these two athletes in there. Stylistically, this is a great match-up as far as the fight goes. These guys are both non-stop and both guys always try to finish, so yes, it makes all the sense in the world."

Hard to disagree with that logic. Anyone think there's a bigger fight that could have been made for the UFC debut on network television? Or did the promotion nail this one?
