Junior dos Santos vs Cain Velasquez UFC 155 fight is going to be very interesting (video). Live results and play by play will be available in the hours to come

Junior dos Santos vs Cain Velasquez rematch has the internet buzzing. The fighting much in demand is set to be fought in the next few hours and there are chances that it will be the toughest fight for both the heavyweights who wouldn’t like to give up and dent their images. Junior dos Santos had emerged victorious in their last outing and now Cain Velasquez is seeking redemption by winning back his belt.

But is he really well placed to win it? Before we answer the question we need to look as to whether he had really lost the fight and was he really fit during his last fight to enter in such a high stake fight. Reports suggest that he was not really well to face a tough fighter like Junior dos Santos. A few days before the actual fight he had suffered very severe pain and there are no reports that he was completely healed before the beginning of the historic fight. A video that was released at that time shows that Cain Velasquez was not fully fit to enter into the octagon for such a tough fight. But if he was not fully fight at that time, this time round he is fighting fit and the path is not be easy for Junior dos Santos.

In the year 2012 Dos Santos had enjoyed unmatched superiority over his opponent and had won a 64-second knockout victory over Velasquez last November on FOX. He later beat mercilessly former champion Frank Mir from pillar to post in his first title defense back in May. But people are not that optimistic about his chances against a fully fit Velasquez. A report while talking about his prospects in the fight says, “It’s a curious position for the champion to be in heading into what will be the final UFC fight of 2012… But as the weeks turned into days, and the days turned into hours leading up to tomorrow night’s main event, the discussion hasn’t centered on the dominance the champion has exhibited in the cage thus far, but rather whether he’ll be able to duplicate his initial performance against Velasquez, even though his last nine outings have provided no reason to question the champion’s capabilities inside the cage”. Today it is going to be a tough match for Santos.

But Junior dos Santos is not much concerned about Velasquez. “Cain is good standing too, but I can see holes during a fight better than he can, and I will be waiting for that opportunity…It doesn’t matter how prepared he is. I’m going to hit his face with good punches and I will knock him out”. For MMA fans the fight is very exciting and people are very eager to see as to what happens tomorrow.
