UFC on FOX: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos Preview & Predictions
November 12, 2011 (10:25) [ Indexed from The Fight Network
In a colossal clash for the UFC heavyweight championship, Brazilian juggernaut Junior dos Santos challenges undefeated torchbearer Cain Velasquez in the UFC's first event presented live on FOX.
Not only are these men the top dogs in the UFC, they epitomize the evolution of a marquee division in mixed martial arts.
In the sport's infancy years, the heavyweight class was dominated by Oleg Taktarov, Dan Severn, Mark Coleman, Gary Goodridge and David "Tank" Abbott. As the sport grew, the quality of fighters improved. Superior mixed marital artists like Frank Mir, Tim Sylvia and Randy Couture assumed control of the division on North American soil, while some of the greatest heavyweights of all time were born in Pride.
The great Fedor Emelianenko, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Josh Barnett and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic redefined what it meant to be a heavyweight. After epic battles in the "Land of the Rising Sun," these men proved that heavyweights can be athletic, fast and downright destructive.
Fast-forward to the year 2011 and the landscape has changed drastically. The once invincible Emelianenko is on a three-fight losing streak and Cro Cop has likely stepped into the cage for the last time.
When Dos Santos and Velasquez enter the octagon Saturday, they will utilize every weapon in their vast arsenals to cement their place atop the heavyweight ladder. Today's modern heavyweight gladiators are no longer one-trick ponies. They possess wrestling pedigrees, crushing striking, crafty submissions and an uncanny ability to adapt to anything thrown their way.
