Cain Velasquez versus Junior dos Santos was the most important fight in UFC history. Unlike Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar, this fight lasted 64 seconds and ended with a huge JDS knockout.
JDS proved something tonight—you can try and take him down, but he will knock you out.
Brock Lesnar might have picked Velasquez, and that would have been the easier fight. Now either him or Alistair Overeem get to face what seems like the unstoppable Junior dos Santos.
Right now it looks like JDS will hold this belt for at least the next year.
JDS has some incredible striking, and if you try and stand and bang with him you will get beat.
On the ground we have yet to see JDS. He has some highly touted Brazilian jiu-jitsu which makes him super scary because we have yet to see it. It's like a secret weapon that he is just waiting to unleash on whoever dares take him to the ground.
Finally, after a year, we see JDS take the belt and walk away as the champion.
Finally we might see JDS fight Lesnar.
