UFC 146 results: Junior dos Santos vs Cain Velasquez is what's next

Looks like fans will be seeing this again soon.

In the latest edition of "booking-made-easy," it looks like Junior dos Santos will defend his title against Cain Velasquez in his next fight.

Shocking, I know.

UFC President Dana White revealed as much in his interview with FUEL TV last night (Sat., May 26, 2012) following UFC 146: "Dos Santos vs. Mir" in Las Vegas, Nevada:

"That's what's next. Not only did (Velasquez) look good (against Antonio Silva), he looked lean. Well, he was undefeated. He was an undefeated champion, he wins a fight, and he gets another shot at Junior."

Last night's event may have been all about the heavyweights, with all five main card bouts coming from within the division, but the emphasis was clearly on the main and co-main event of the evening.

Dos Santos and Velasquez were always on a collision course with "Bigfoot" and Frank Mir simply acting as obstacles. Ultimately, they weren't much more than speed bumps who got ran over by the two best 265-pound fighters in the world.

So while Alistair Overeem serves out his suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) and Daniel Cormier remains tied down in Strikeforce, Dos Santos and Velasquez can meet in the cage one more time, hopefully with both coming in healthy instead of dealing with knee injuries.

Sound good to you, Maniacs?

After the jump, hear Dana White talk about the match-up, whether or not it could be held in a stadium, and other assorted topics from UFC 146.
