UFC 146 Aftermath: Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez 2 In the Works



At UFC 146, Cain Velasquez entered the Octagon a man on a mission.  From the opening bell you could tell that just based on his demeanor that he was going for the big first round finish.

Unfortunately for Velasquez’s opponent Silva, he just happened to be the wrong opponent at the wrong time because Velasquez seemed even more motivated and hungry after losing the title to Junior Dos Santos.

With the impressive win, UFC President Dana White feels that another fight against Dos Santos is next in the cards for Velasquez.

“I think it’s a good idea, we like that fight”, UFC President Dana White said at the post-fight press conference. “Cain went undefeated for a long time, lost to Junior.  I like the fight, we’ll see what happens.”

For Velasquez, not being champion doesn’t sit well with him.  It’s almost as if he feels naked without the heavyweight title, but after the dominant win over Silva, Velasquez feels great knowing that the title is within his grasp once again.

“It feels great,” Velasquez said post-fight.  “The only reason why I got into this sport is to be the champ and I just don’t feel right, right now without having it.”

A date and venue has yet to be set for Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos 2, but stay tuned to MMAWeekly.com as more info becomes available.
