Check out last night’s “Fight of the Night” winning bout in the co-main between Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt! If you missed the wild action, ESPN has some clips to fill you in on the highlights, but we highly advise you watching the card in its entirety. It’s that good.
The former champ not only rebounded last night with a huge knockout victory over Pride and K-1 striking specialist Mark Hunt — he also got the attention of the UFC brass. Following JDS’ spinning heel kick finish in Vegas, Dana White had no problem admitting that it will be a trilogy title fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos next.
As the champ once again takes out Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (even faster) again, in the main event, it makes no surprise that Velasquez and dos Santos are atop the division with a score to settle. During the post-fight press conference, as the match-up was talked on, neither man had any disagreements on the third match-up.
