UFC 155: Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez 2 fight video preview (Extended)

UFC 155: "Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2" is just over a week away and that means it's time to take an extended look at the event, featuring the rematch between heavyweight titleholder Junior dos Santos and the man he took the strap from, Cain Velasquez.

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.
