A couple weeks ago, UFC president Dana White was targeting UFC 152 in Toronto to host the heavyweight title fight between champion Junior dos Santos and challenger Cain Velasquez.

On Saturday night’s UFC 147 Post-Fight show on Fuel TV, White confirmed that the fight would not likely happen at UFC 152 after all.

The fight between dos Santos and Velasquez is a rematch of their first fight at the first UFC on Fox event back in November of last year.

While the bout is still going to happen, Canadian fans expecting it for the Toronto show in September are likely to be disappointed.

“The fight will happen, they’re probably not going to fight in Toronto though,” White stated.

The shoe is on the other foot – or the belt around the other waist – this time, as Velasquez held the belt going into UFC on Fox 1.

Dos Santos dropped Velasquez with an overhand right a minute into their fight and finished him off with punches on the mat to take the belt. He has since defended the belt once, defeating Frank Mir with a second round TKO at UFC 146 in May.

Now according to White, it’s up to the UFC heavyweight champion when the fight will take place.

“It’s going to depend on Junior,” said White. “We’ll see what happens.”
