My thoughts

On Saturday, November 12 at the Anaheim Center Dos Santos will have a chance to take the title from Cain Velasquez and secure his spot as the top dog in the heavyweight division. In order for dos Santos to win this fight, Santos needs to get the fight to the ground and finish Velasquez with his superior Jujitsu skills. Even though Velasquez is great on the ground I believe that Santos has an edge on Velasquez on the mat. The longer the fight stays standing the more the fight stays in Velasquez's heavy hands.

I believe that Velasquez will win this fight with a first round knockout. It is good news for fight fans that the UFC has now gone mainstream. I am very excited to see this Cain Velasquez fight and I can't wait to see more fights on cable TV .
