It wasn't pretty, but here are the highlights anyway.

Daniel Cormier may not have scored the most impressive victory over Roy Nelson in the co-main event of last night's (Sat., Oct. 19, 2013) UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 2" pay-per-view (PPV) from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, but he most definitely made clear that he is, in fact, the superior fighter. In fact, he may have proven himself to be the second best heavyweight in the division, which is a real shame at this point because the only man above him, Champion Cain Velasquez, is a teammate he won't fight. Nonetheless, he used a strong grappling game mixed with technical striking to out-duel "Big Country", a veteran whose name will always look impressive on a resume. The question quickly turns to what's next for "DC" and that's anyone's guess. I'll leave it up to you Maniacs to to figure out.
