Excited for winter? 

Sure, brutal weather and cold barren darkness isn't the most appealing thing to look ahead to, but at least we have December 29—a glorious beacon of radiance that makes the whole forsaken season bearable.

That's because the UFC's end-of-the-year show is set for December 29, and will feature one of the promotion's strongest cards in recent memory.

The event will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between reigning champion Junior Dos Santos and challenger Cain Velasquez. The bout is a rematch and signifies the second time the two rivals have competed for UFC gold in just over a year's time.

The night's main event is supplemented by a bevy of intriguing contests that promise to excite from start to finish.

Featherweight title hopefuls Erik Koch and Ricardo Lamas will compete to take a step closer to Jose Aldo's crown.

Brad Pickett and Eddie Wineland will square off in a bantamweight showdown with title implications.

Yushin Okami and Alan Belcher will go at it to help break apart the knotted middleweight title scene. 

Chris Weidman and Tim Boetsch will also being vying to leap ahead of their middleweight counterparts at UFC 155.

Gray Maynard and Joe Lauzon will compete against one another in a battle of TUF 5 alum, which will impact the title scene at 155 pounds.

All this, not to mention rising star Phil Davis will test his mettle against fan-favorite Forrest Griffin.

If this list of UFC 155 clashes isn't enough to get you salivating, take a look at the teaser.

If that doesn't do it, check your pulse.
