Dana White confirmed today that former Arizona State wrestling standout Cain Velasquez will take on the winner of UFC 116's main event between Shane Carwin and Brock Lesnar.

White explained the plans after the pre-fight presser.

"Realistically, the heavyweight division has never been more stacked," said the UFC president.  "This is a great fight between two real heavyweights on Saturday night, and whoever wins, Cain Velasquez is waiting in the wings...to fight the winner."  

It didn't stop there, however.  White continued to detail that the winner of Brazilian Junior dos Santos and Ultimate Fighter alum Roy Nelson would have a crack at the winner.

"Then, whoever wins that fight, you got Dos Santos and Big Country fighting...the winner of that fight is waiting for the next guy," exclaimed White.  "If you can run through this division right now...you're the man."

There is no denying that the UFC's heavyweight division is fully loaded; probably more than it's ever been.  

The new age heavyweight is like a glimpse into the evolution of man; where the standard is to fight at the weight limit of 265-pounds and have power the likes of your favorite DC Comics character.

One thing is for sure; it is probably in the Nevada State Athletic Commission's best intrest to assign the Incredible Hulk as the referee for Saturday night's festivities...I'm just saying.

Expect to see the Octagon break if Lesnar and Carwin clinch up against the cage.
