Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos fight results UFC 166, Round 1

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 same way he did before, striking hard and fast while working for takedowns. Dos Santos, this time, returned fire and held his own just fine, though he was hurt at times.

It was relatively even by the end, with Cain scoring the numbers but the Brazilian landing a big shot that had his foe rocked.
