UFC on FOX Results: Grading Junior dos Santos, Cain Velasquez and More

Saturday night in Anaheim, Calif. marked a milestone in the history of mixed martial arts. For the first time ever, the Ultimate Fighting Championship was able to showcase its product to anyone with a television and access to the local FOX station.

When all was said and done, fans were able to witness the two greatest kinds of fights—a drag-out war and a brutal knockout.

Over the course of 15 minutes, Ben Henderson and Clay Guida went to war in what will certainly be a candidate for Fight of the Year. When all was said and done, Henderson was awarded a unanimous decision victory and will fight Frankie Edgar in February for the UFC lightweight title.

In the main event of the evening, Cain Velasquez returned to the Octagon after a 13-month layoff to defend his heavyweight title for the first time against No. 1 contender Junior dos Santos.

It took dos Santos a mere 64 seconds to knock out Velasquez to become the new UFC heavyweight champion, handing Velasquez his very first professional defeat. 

As a whole, let's take a look at the fighters and the event and dish out some grades.
