If a picture is worth a thousand words, the image of UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos is worth five volumes' worth of MMA history.
The Terminator and Cigano are seen as the No. 1 and No. 2 heavyweights in the post-Fedor-and-Couture era of the sport, but some argue the UFC 141 headliners Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem are in the mix with dos Santos in an underrated heavyweight pack.
Many have questioned whether the card would deliver, considering that the heavyweight championship bout is the only bout televised on FOX, especially with a deserving lightweight title eliminator between Ben Henderson and Clay Guida on this card. However, when the ZUFFA brass has put on fight cards with such long-term significance as the one this card holds, it very seldom underwhelms.
With fights such as DaMarques Johnson vs. Clay Harvison, Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto vs. Darren Uyenoyama, Dustin Poirier vs. Pablo Garza, and Alex Caceres vs. Cole Escovedo—among others that will lead up to the monumental main and co-main event of the evening—this card has the definite potential to bat 5,000 without striking out once.
All these fights, plus celebrity sightings, Big John McCarthy and hopefully Brittany Palmer are all here, as this is the MMA landmark night in Anaheim, California.
