Junior dos Santos vs Mark HuntFormer UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos needed an impressive win to erase the memory of his 2012 loss to Cain Velasquez. This dynamic attack and dramatic win over the iron-chinned Mark Hunt certainly did the trick, earning Cigano another title shot.

Junior dos Santos returns to the Octagon in the UFC 166 main event to challenge current champion Cain Velasquez in the third bout of their trilogy.
