The champ, Cain Velasquez has successfully completed  his second straight title defense with a TKO over the only man to beat him the octagon, Junior dos Santos.  Shortly after the five round battle, UFC president Dana White spoke on the pay-per-view broadcast, admitting that the next ‘likely‘ challenge for the heavyweight champ is jiu-jitsu specialist Fabricio Werdum.

The battle seems fitting, considering that Werdum is not only the first man to dethrone the then best heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko, but he is also riding an impressive three fight win-streak in the organization, including a submission of legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.
