In the final round now and it's amazing Dos Santos is still upright. The chin on this guy!
Velasquez presses forward and they clinch up. Referee Herb Dean just told Dos Santos he'll deduct a point if Dos Santos grabs the fence again. Dos Santos has been doing that a lot.
Junior's still in it but his hands are low and Cain is capitalizing. Dos Santos defends a takedown and then lands a right hand. He is always dangerous.
Velasquez locks up the clinch again; he appears to be content for this to go the distance. He lands a trip in the center of the Octagon and gets Junior's back. Now he gets on top and starts raining elbows. His endurance is every bit as good as advertised. Again they clinch against the fence.
We're at the one-minute mark and they're still against the face. Dos Santos's right eye may be swollen shut. Cain lands a head kick but Dos Santos doesn't go anywhere. This has been a beating but Dos Santos has proven his toughness.
Round score: 10-9 Velasquez
Predicted final score: 50-45 Velasquez. Looks like we have a new champion at heavyweight.
Official decision: Cain Velasquez defeats Junior Dos Santos by unanimous decision, 50-45, 50-44, 50-43
