The Baddest man on the Planet: Cain Velasquez defeated Junior dos Santos in their rubber match at UFC 166

Houston, Texas – The much anticipated trilogy between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos turned out pretty similar to their rematch, albeit with more definitive results. The 32 year old champ played the perfect game; he dominated dos Santos in all the aspects of the fight, even in the striking department, where Cigano supposedly had an advantage. Just like their last fight, Velasquez negated the heavy hands of dos Santos by backing him up into the cage. The rest of the fight played out the same scenario; Velasquez controlling dos Santos in the clinch while chipping at him with dirty boxing. Cigano eventually succumbed due to the accumulation of punishment in the 5th round, he fell face first in to the canvass after a failed front choke attempt. Seeing Cigano’s vulnerable state, Referee Herb Dean decided to put a halt to the contest with 3:09 remaining in the final round.

"Losers don't get anything. They get the ax. Only winners earn the spotlight. Now I have to bust my (butt) and hope I'll have the opportunity to avenge myself against Marloes and Sarah." ---Roxanne Modafferi

Former Strikeforce top women’s welterweight contender, Roxanne Modafferi, has been cut off by the promotion after being slammed by Sarah Kaufman. Modafferi’s Strikeforce debut came last year during a Fedor vs Rogers bout, where she had a rematch against Marloes Coenen. Last 2007, she has beaten the current women’s welterweight champion in Japan via split decision. However, Modafferi loss to Coenen early in the first round via armbar during their second meet.

Modafferi took two bouts outside Strikeforce then, including a rematch against Tara LaRosa last May. Roxanne Modafferi ended LaRosa’s 15-fight winning streak via split decision, which earned her a tittle shot in Strikeforce. Unfortunately, Sarah Kaufman knocked her out after executing a highlight-reel power slam in the third round. Modafferi’s loss to Kaufman brought her out of Strikeforce.
