UFC 166: Velasquez vs dos Santos Live Odds

UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3 was a mixed martial arts event held on October 19, 2013, at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas

The main event was a UFC Heavyweight Championship bout between the current champion Cain Velasquez and top contender Junior dos Santos.

The two have split their two previous encounters with Dos Santos winning the first bout via first round knockout at UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. dos Santos and then Velasquez winning the rematch via unanimous decision at UFC 155.

UFC 166 is now officially in the books. The event lived up to the hype and then some, producing a memorable eight finishes, a handful of competitive bouts and a match that will be remembered as one of the most exciting of all time in Diego Sanchez vs. Gilbert Melendez.

Cain Velasquez vs Junior dos Santos:

Round 5: Dos Santos’ vision is checked again before the final round begins, and the Brazilian is cleared to finish the fight. He scores with a right hand early in the frame, but Velasquez is already in on a single-leg and puts his challenger on the ground in the center of the cage. Dos Santos gets to the cage and stands, but he’s trapped there by Velasquez, who pops him with right hands to the damaged eye.

Dos Santos uses an elbow to escape again, but Velasquez just stands in range and bombs with punches until he comes back to clinch again. They separate for a few seconds before Velasquez cracks his man with another hard right. Dos Santos tries for a brabo or guillotine choke and lands on his head as Velasquez tosses the challenger over his shoulder.

Dos Santos is on his knees, dazed from his head colliding with the canvas, and referee Dean steps in to wave off the bout as Velasquez loads up to finish the fight with punches.
