“UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II” took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cain Velasquez (Pictured) recaptured his heavyweight crown from Junior dos Santos in the show’s featured attraction.

Please keep refreshing this page, as we are updating the presser notes as it goes:

UFC president Dana White was shocked the main event went five rounds. Thought Cain Velasquez could have stopped the fight at any point after the 1stRound.

According to White, 12,423 fans packed the arena, garnering a live gate of $3.286 million.

White heard (not confirmed) Junior dos Santos broke his jaw at some point in the 2ndRound, but kept competing. Dos Santos is headed to the hospital and won’t attend presser.

Dana’s open to arranging a rubber match, but noted this scrap was pretty one-sided so dos Santos will likely have to take another fight to get back in the mix.

Jim Miller admits the heel hook submission attempt Joe Lauzon caught him with at the end was very close.

White admitted the Garcia vs. Holloway fight was very difficult to score.

White confirmed if Michael Bisping beats Vitor Belfort, he’ll get next shot at the middleweight title.

White stated the UFC will not cut Garcia, despite his four straight losses.

Dana said he regrets putting Chris Leben on main card. He slams Derek Brunson for constantly looking up at the clock during the bout.

Cain has hit the podium.

Velasquez said he wanted to be methodical with his attack even though it seemed he could finish the bout in the early rounds.

Cain said AKA partner Daniel Cormier might move down to light heavyweight now that he’s champ.

Velasquez wasn’t surprised he didn’t knock out dos Santos because he’s such a warrior.

Christmas come late for Cain, he’s celebrating with his family starting tomorrow.

Velasquez says it would be a dream for him to fight in Mexico.

Cain notes that the first time he won the title, so did the San Francisco Giants. They won again this year and he just reclaimed belt.

White: If Alistair Overeem beats Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, he’ll fight Junior dos Santos. That winner will face Cain.

White admits the co-main and main event saved the lackluster pay-per-view.

Reporter confirmed dos Santos didn’t break his jaw.

White admits Yushin Okami’s win over Alan Belcher was big.

That’s all, folks.

Interesting, Cain took off and left his belt on the podium. Hey, champ. Forget something???
