Just as the UFC has done in the prior year-end finale; they cap out the year with another heavyweight striking war. Heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos (15-1) looks to make his third title defense against Cain Velasquez (10-1) – the man he stripped of the belt back in Nov. 2011 with a 64 second knockout.
Also on the card is newly exchanged match-up Forrest Griffin versus Phil Davis in the co-main, as well as welterweight contenders Tim Boetsch versus Chris Weidman. The line-up doesn’t thin much as you go down the list. Joe Lauzon will look to test Gray Maynard on the ground, as well as a showdown between “The Talent” Alan Belcher versus Yushin Okami. Here’s the full roster to UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II.
