Junior dos Santos knocked out Cain Velasquez in the first meeting. Velasquez dominated Dos Santos for five full rounds in the second meeting. Tonight (Sat., Oct. 19, 2013) in the main event of UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3" at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, they met for a third and final time to settle the score in an awesome heavyweight trilogy over the division title.

Velasquez opened the second round rushing out and getting in his opponent's face. He pushed the Brazilian up against the cage and made sure to keep his pressure game strong.

In response to this, Dos Santos did his best to stay measured, trying to keep his gas tank full while fending off Cain's blitzing offense. No easy task, considering how well Velasquez rushes in.

The two battled against the fence and it was there that Dos Santos attempted to fire off with shots to score some offense. It didn't look all that special, though, not with Velasquez pressing him so hard.

The round ended with Cain just missing a takedown and Junior landing an overhand shot.
