Dos Santos Vs. Velasquez II Unlikely For UFC 152 In Toronto

Cain Velasquez (James Law/HeavyMMA)

Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II delayed

A heavyweight title rematch between champion Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez is happening, but not at UFC 152 in Toronto on September 22.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the news to FUEL TV after UFC 147.

“This fight will happen, but probably not in Toronto,” White said.

Dos Santos and Velasquez first met at the first ever “UFC on FOX” event, as Velasquez lost his title due to a first round knockout loss. They both fought at UFC 146, each earning technical knockout wins. The victories triggered talk of a rematch, and White said that UFC 152 could be the potential event.

The rematch now will be moved back, possibly to the following month on October 13 in Brazil, dos Santos’ home country.
