The historic UFC on FOX 1: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos" broadcast has officially wrapped from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. In the main event of the evening, and the only fight to make the one hour primetime special, Cain Velasquez defended his heavyweight title against Junior dos Santos.

Well, he didn't defend it. He lost it, actually.

That's because Dos Santos came in hard and fast with a big overhand right and put Velasquez to the mat. Some follow up shots turned the champion over and that was it.

Junior dos Santos defeats Cain Velasquez to become the UFC heavyweight champion on the very first UFC on FOX network broadcast. And he did it in just over one minute.

Dos Santos landed a nice right hand in the early going but Velasquez walked through it. A takedown attempt failed early from the champion.

The crowd was electric for everything. 

Just one minute into the round and with "Cigano" looking as comfortable as ever, he landed hard and clean just above Velasquez's temple and near his ear.

That's the sweet spot, ladies and gentlemen.

Follow up ground and pound finished the job for a short but electrifying heavyweight title fight. Was it as good for you as it was for Dos Santos?
