Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently put the finishing touches on its upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) fight card scheduled for the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Dec. 29, 2012.
"Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2" will feature a monster heavyweight rematch pitting current titleholder Junior dos Santos against the man he took the 265-pound strap from last year, Cain Velasquez. The winner could be in line to defend against Alistair Overeem in mid-2013, assuming "Demolition Man" can get by Antonio Silva upon his return.
In the co-main event, Jim Miller and Joe Lauzon will collide in a lightweight showdown that will inch the winner closer to the top of the 155-pound heap heading into the New Year. If Anthony Pettis should stumble in his fight against Donald Cerrone, could the winner face "Cowboy" for a crack at the crown?
Time will tell.
