The first time Cain Velasquez threw leather with Junior dos Santos, the outcome did not go his way. The Brazilian scored a 64-second knockout and captured the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight crown at UFC on Fox 1 in November 2011. Velasquez will get his chance to avenge the only defeat of his career when he meets dos Santos in the UFC 155 main event on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. During a pre-fight media call for their rematch, Velasquez admitted he views the heavyweight champion with considerable admiration:

“I have a lot of respect for Junior and the way he carries himself in the cage and out. No trash talking, just down to business, just very respectful.”
