UFC 155 results: Junior dos Santos becomes the new poster boy for punch face

New, comments

Junior dos Santos was battered and bruised all around the cage at UFC 155 last night (Dec. 29, 2012) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cain Velasquez took it to him and in doing so, made "Cigano" the new poster boy for punch face.

Junior dos Santos showed the heart of a champion last night (Sat., Dec. 29, 2012) in the main event of UFC 155 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, enduring a sustained beating from the newly crowned heavyweight king Cain Velasquez, who took home the decision victory in a landslide.

It started with a dominant first round and never let up. Velasquez hit "Cigano" so hard and so often, it was originally thought that the Brazilian had suffered a broken jaw. He was so beaten and dejected that he immediately took a trip to the hospital instead of showing up for the post-fight press conference.

Safety first.

What Velasquez really did, though, was turn Dos Santos into the new poster boy for punch face. The photos coming out of this fight have all been unbelievable illustrations of Velasquez's most dominant performance to date.
