UFC 166 results recap: Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos event wrap up from Houston

Let's wrap up UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3" from this past weekend, shall we?

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3" blew the roof off the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on Sat., Oct. 19, 2013, featuring a main event of Cain Velasquez successfully defending his heavyweight title over Junior dos Santos in the final bout of their historic trilogy.

The co-headlining attraction saw Daniel Cormier take care of business against Roy Nelson, earning a unanimous decision in a bout that saw him cruise his way past a challenge that, quite frankly, seemed beneath him.

The other three main card bouts saw Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez have a "Fight of the Year" candidate, Gabriel Gonzaga knock out Shawn Jordan in heavyweight action, and John Dodson destroy Darrell Montague to put his name back in the flyweight title picture.

In cased you missed any or all of it -- or just want to keep the discussion alive -- below are links to all the major storylines borne from Saturday night's event in Houston.
