The champion is unbeatable once again. Here are Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos 3, UFC 166 results & full fight highlights (video)
This was a fight in which we had expected great show from Junior dos Santos. But the fight turned out to be a complete show of Cain Velasquez who once again showed to the world that he is the best heavyweight MMA fighter. To be true, from the word go till the last moment, he was able to keep Dos Santos under complete check and never allowed him to take control of the fight. While Cain Velasquez took control of the octagon Junior dos Santos was firmly sitting besides the fence trying to figure out as to how to come out of the fight.
This was like the second fight of the two heavyweight greats when Cain Velasquez was in total control. Once again after the fight was over a smiling Junior dos Santos said that he will work again and come to meet and take revenge against the champion who has beaten him twice in a row. As we had said that a long fight was always going to be in favour of Cain Velasquez as a master strategist he has the capability to change the course of the game midway.
The fight was very similar to the last one. Dos Santos had a few more moments this time around, but it was still utter domination. Though in the first few moments of the fight it was dos Santos who actually started attacking, but later the game was firmly in Velasquez’s control. In the beginning Dos Santos clipped Velasquez in such a way that he staggered badly reviving the memories of the first fight, but despite staggering Velasquez was able to recover. But in the first half of the first round it was almost equal, but afterward the whole round and then subsequent fight belonged to Velasquez.
In the second round the same scene is repeated and in this round Junior is always given more powerful response of every attack. And like Round 1, Velasquez is feeding him short punches and knees to the thighs. Velasquez continues to haunt him across the octagon and mostly Dos Santos is seen in the fence. To be true, throughout the fight, Velasquez showed as to why he is so much dangerous fighter.
