After dismantling the presumably unstoppable force in Junior dos Santos, Cain Velasquez has reclaimed his throne atop the UFC heavyweight division.
Velasquez forcefully dominated dos Santos in every facet of their rematch Saturday night. From landing more straight shots standing to throwing the Brazilian around like a wrestling dummy, Velasquez never seemed to let up in proving that he's the best heavyweight in the world.
For dos Santos, it was more humiliating than disappointing. The guy that never gets taken down got whipped to the ground 11 times. The quintessential best pound-for-pound boxer in MMA was unable to land a shot against a guy he knocked out the first time around.
Now while this speaks levels to the underlying notion that dos Santos may not be as good as people thought, it speaks even more highly on how good Velasquez is, and ultimately can be.
As long as he can remain healthy, improve his submission game, and continue to mature as a striker, there's no reason why Velasquez can't rack off title defense after title defense.
Not for nothing, but we've never seen a guy with a motor as high as Velasquez's and the dominate persona he taps into every time he takes center stage. He may be the best heavyweight in UFC history.
