New video emerges claiming Cain Velasquez tore his ACL prior to knockout loss against Junior dos Santos

Is it time to put the past behind us ... or revisit it? That depends on your take of the first meeting between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, who will do it again in less than two weeks with the UFC heavyweight title up for grabs.

Well, the timing here is certainly ... coincidental.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez will try to reclaim his crown when he locks horns with Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC 155, which is scheduled for Dec. 29, 2012 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What happened the first time he went toe-to-toe with "Cigano?"

He got knocked out in 64 seconds. Following the loss, the first of his career, Velasquez was critical of his performance and promised a better showing if -- and when -- he got the opportunity to get his belt back. But what's going to be different the second time around?

Well, for one thing, he won't have a torn ACL.

That's the message from this recently-released video from longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) filmmaker Bobby Razak, who alleges the devastating knee injury happened just 14 days before their showdown on the promotion's inaugural FOX broadcast.

But Velasquez wasn't the only one fighting on one leg.

Dos Santos tore his meniscus prior to fight night. In fact, his first order of business following his championship win was to undergo surgery to have it repaired (see the pic here). That means both men fought with one good stick and not surprisingly, the advantage went to the striker.

But who will have the advantage in their "Sin City" rematch?

Alright Maniacs. let's get some feedback on this video (courtesy of Middle Easy). Does anyone have a problem with the timing of its release, considering it's been over a year since the injury occurred? And do you think anything changes if both fighters are 100 percent?
