Dana White: Velasquez Vs. JDS III A No-Brainer
Following a dominant performance by UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez over Antonio Silva, and Junior dos Santos knocking out a man with an iron chin in Mark Hunt, the match-up to be is obvious. Dana White agrees whole-heartedly, White told the media at the UFC 160 post-fight press conference, “No-brainer. If there was ever a trilogy, that’s it right there. If you look at the way that both fights went: Junior destroys him (Cain) in the first fight, Cain destroys Junior in the second fight. I cant wait to see the third fight.”
White continued, “They both looked awesome tonight, they are the two best heavyweights int he world.” When the media hinted at the possibility of the Velasquez vs Dos Santos III being the main event at UFC on Fox Sports 1 in Boston this August, White replied, “I don’t know what we are going to do. We have probably four or five options right now, so we’ll see.” Junior was next with the microphone and told reporters, “My next fight, if thats going to be for the title, thats what I want. I believe so much that I can stay on top on this division for a long time.”
In response to the fight announcement, the champ Cain Velasquez agreed that the trilogy fight was a must. Cain simply said, “That fight makes sense so definitely.”Â What does Penn Nation think? WHo takes the trilogy match between these two juggernauts? Does Cain dominant “Cigano” again? Or does Junior land one of his signature right hand’s again for the KO?
