UFC 155 Fight Card: 5 Reasons You Must Watch This Event

I have no evidence to support what I'm about to say. What am I, a lawyer? A scientist? A "journalist"? Please.

What I am is a speculator. An opinionator. And I am presently of the opinion that UFC 155, set to go down Saturday from fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, is somewhat lacking in the buzz department.

Maybe it's because the main event features a rematch between two guys (heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos and challenger Cain Velasquez) who don't exactly set the microphone on fire, and whose initial fight ended after like two seconds. Maybe it's because the full card was shaped by no less than six separate injuries. Maybe it's because no fighter outside the evening's main event has ever held a UFC belt. Maybe it's because the event arrives just four days after Christmas.

Maybe I'm completely wrong on this. Maybe I'm not. Either way, casual and hardcore fans alike should be pumped for this one. Here are five reasons why.
