UFC 155: Salaries for Dos Santos vs Velasquez 2 Fight Card
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC closed out 2012 on Saturday night with UFC 155.  The events saw a new UFC heavyweight champion crowned as Cain Velasquez wrested the title away from Junior dos Santos with a dominant five round performance, while in the co-main event Jim Miller returned to the win column with a “Fight of the Night” decision victory over Joe Lauzon.

Also of note was Costa Philippou’s upset TKO win over Tim Boetsch who was on a four fight winning streak prior to Saturday night. 

Two returning fighters had different levels of success in Las Vegas. Chris Leben, returning from a yearlong drug related suspension dropped a decision to Derek Brunson, while Todd Duffee returning to the UFC after being released in 2010, took home “Knockout of the Night” honors with a first round knockout of Phil De Fries.
