UFC 155: Velasquez/dos Santos. What happened? Two words: total domination by Cain Velasquez.
Junior dos Santos was rolling going into this fight. Right after getting the championship belt in dominant fashion, he got the Nike sponsorship, his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt, and another devastating over Frank Mir (who was, obviously, no match). Overall, he was raking in the success, and he came into this fight as a heavy favorite, despite Cain being [obviously] hungrier.
We also saw that dos Santos has been overflowing with confidence. He didn’t seem to be training in his usual style, and he went to some expensive gyms and such, abandoning his roots with his original team. In his interviews, his smile could be seen from a mile away, and his English has never been sharper.
