05:15 PM ET 10.16 | UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez gets another crack at the only man to hand him a loss in his career, Junior dos Santos, so he has been reliving the second matchup between the two in anticipation of this weekend's trilogy fight at UFC 166. In their first matchup, dos Santos scored a quick TKO win, but Velasquez bounced back in their second meeting to deliver a dominating performance. Velasquez was picking apart the former champ and taking him to the mat with ease to deliver a brutal beating. At times during the second match, it looked like Velasquez was passing up submissions in order to finish the fight on the ground, and he confirmed that during a recent interview.
