Dos Santos vs Velasquez Rematch May Be Coming to Toronto

Published on June 9th, 2012 12:45 pm EST

According to UFC President Dana White, the much anticipated rematch between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez may be coming to Toronto at UFC 152.

A dos Santos vs Velasquez fight would serve as the main event for a card that likely also has another high profile match - BJ Penn vs Rory MacDonald.

Both dos Santos and Velasquez emerged from their recent fights relatively unscathed, which makes the possibility of a late September tilt (UFC 152 is currently scheduled to take place on September 22nd, 2012) likely.

There are two additional Canadian cards set for this year - UFC 149: Aldo vs Koch, and UFC 154 in Montreal. The UFC 149 card is already set, and UFC 154 will likely feature Georges St. Pierre vs Carlos Condit for the Welterweight title. So, in short, UFC 152 makes perfect sense for Velasquez vs dos Santos.

Velasquez absolutely destroyed Antonio Silva at UFC 146, setting the stage for a rematch against dos Santos. Many feel as though Velasquez wasn't his normal self when he lost his title to Junior dos Santos in November of 2011, which has led to a quick rematch between the two fighters.


Either way, UFC 152 is already shaping up to be a great card.
