It’s the biggest trilogy in MMA history, so of course the Ultimate Fighting Championship had to go big for Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos III.
The official event poster for “UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos III” has just hit the Internet, and it’s pretty darn sweet.
The October 19 card takes place inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, the new home of Dwight Howard (good riddance). Champion Velasquez defends his heavyweight throne against dos Santos in the rubber match to end all rubber matches – well, to at least end their rivalry.
Although they aren’t depicted in the billboard, a 265-pound affair with Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson serves as the co-main event.
Here is the show’s current lineup:
Adlan Amagov vs. T.J. Waldburger
George Roop vs. Francisco Rivera
Tony Ferguson vs. Mike Rio
George Sotiropoulos vs. KJ Noons
Shawn Jordan vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Hector Lombard vs. Nate Marquardt
Luke Rockhold vs. Tim Boetsch
Diego Sanchez vs. Gilbert Melendez
Roy Nelson vs. Daniel Cormier
Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez (UFC heavyweight champion)
