The biggest win and most impressive performance of the night was at UFC 131 was by Junior dos Santos. The big Brazilian nearly finished Shane Carwin in the first round but instead battered him for 15 minutes.
His boxing, stamina, speed, clinch and wrestling were all on display, outstriking Carwin 104-22 and going 2-2 in his takedown attempts, according to FightMetric.
Next for Junior dos Santos is obviously a matchup with Heavyweight titleholder Cain Velasquez, set for UFC 136 on October 8, 2011. Due to his most recent fight, dos Santos is opening up as a slight favorite in the betting lines.
Picking a winner between the two seems pretty much impossible, seeing as how both have dominated every fight they've been in. The only thing that may have showed a slight chink the in the armor of Velasquez was his performance against Cheick Kongo, where he was dropped several times. However, he's evolved so much since then that it is hardly indicative of his current striking ability.
