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.

"I saw Amir Sadollah, and I know that he was a pretty big guy from 'The Ultimate Fighter'. I think that would be a pretty good little start, right there." --- Tony Ferguson, TUF 13 champion

Just less than an hour after knocking out Ramsey Nijem and being crowned as the TUF 13 champion, Tony Ferguson is already thinking on who he wants to fight next. The recent TUF champ actually calls on to TUF 17 winner, Amir Sadollah. However, Tony Ferguson is willing to fight whoever UFC wants.

“It doesn’t matter who you put in front of me. I have great coaches and I’m going to be ready for any kind of fight. It took me a bit to get used to being in front of everybody, but I think I belong here – and I’ve got the trophy now to prove it.”

Tony Ferguson also added that he loves eating, and despite the ability to be in the lightweight, the TUF 13 king prefers to stay in the middleweight division.

After ten weeks of being watched and tested, Tony Ferguson finally proves that he is the Ulitmate Fighter after defeating Ramsey Nijem via knockout last Saturday.

At the 13th season of The Ultimate Fighter, Tony Ferguson became the show’s outcast and target of criticism after a drunken tirade against Charlie Rader and his custody issues with his son. Because of that, Tony Ferguson received an avalanche of negative publicity in the recent weeks. Still, he was able to earn his spot at the TUF 13 Finale last Saturday and defeated Ramsey Nijem via knockout.

The victory gave Tony Ferguson a ‘six-figure’ UFC contract and becomes the welterweight champion of The Ultimate Fighter season 13. The Tony Ferguson vs Ramsey Nijem match headlines the TUF 13 Finale, which took action last Saturday, June 4, at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The night’s main card aired on Spike TV, while the preliminary fight streamed on Facebook for free.

Before long though, it was weigh-in time for the first semifinal bout: Team Lesnar’s Chris Cope and Team Dos Santos’ Ramsey Nijem. Soon, they head into the first fight.
