Junior dos Santos vs. Cain VelasquezThe last UFC event that will deliver this year, a year that was full of many fights that will be for ever.

Dana White closes by 2012 tomorrow, Saturday December 29 with a main card full of good grapplers, good strikers, a fight for the heavyweight title is also a rematch and have been waiting since UFC 146, when Dos Santos defeated Velasquez Mir and Antonio Silva.

The UFC 155 has a billboard full of replacements in the end were just perfect. Time, as always, to go straight to the point.


Middleweight: Chris Leben vs. Derek Brunson:

Chris Leben is a very important victory (against Wanderlei Silva) and a pretty significant defeat (against Mark Munoz) and after a year away from the cage, for all those who think that Leben lost sheen, this is a good opportunity to prove it.

His opponent, Derek Brunson will, could tell, cut from the UFC if he wins this first fight. Entering with a loss in Strikeforce and another in ShoFight20. With two straight losses, Brunson is a wrestling champion of the NCAA in the second division. But Leben has a good takedown defense and despite having nine straight wins, we all know that White and Fertitta does not like losing streak. Both must achieve a high level in this fight, as this will dictate their future.

Middleweight: Yushin Okami vs. Alan Belcher:

A rematch with view to becoming a trilogy? The first time these two met was at UFC 62 where Okami won via decision, something quite common in his career) If, Yushin Okami is a fighter who has won more times by submission or decision stroke, but not We can rule out that at some point was a top contender number 1 and remains the number 8 on the list of top middleweight.

The left of Okami is amazing and the floor will not go wrong. We could consider the dominant fighter in this battle, but (there's always a but) this time, the story might be different from the first meeting. Belcher comes with four consecutive victories, destroying and Patrick Coté Rousimar Palhares, among others.

It has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, 1st dan in Ta Kwon Do black belt in kickboxing Duke Roufus, Hayastan Grappling brown belt in Judo and a brown, so it's not new to martial arts and is more than certain that seek revenge.

Middleweight: Tim Boetsch vs. Costa Philippou:

The Barbarian, Tim Boetsch, against Constantinos "Costa" Philippou. This fight promises to be quite violent, Boetsch is a fighter in the striking may seem a bit messy and somewhat technical but is a very good striking. A fighter who puts a lot of pressure. Entering with four straight wins, Boetsch lost his last fight in 2010 against the wrestler Phil Davis. The wrestling is not a factor here (although MMA and know that anything can happen) but Costa Philippou is a striker, and also comes with four straight wins. Probably more technical fists Boetsch, but pure MMA boxing is in the background to keep the dirty boxing. This will be a very strong fight, a decision can be reached quickly or can be finished via KO.

Lightweight: Joe Lauzon vs Jim Miller:

This fight looks to be pretty, but pretty interesting. Either because I do Jiu Jitsu or because Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller are two pretty impressive fighters in the division, but I am right in saying that this will be one of the best fights of the night.

The floor will be the highlight here, both fighters have a very good Jiu Jitsu, Lauzon is a submission master and one very impressive, with a purple belt black belt subjected to Gabe Rudiger with armbar in the first round at UFC 118. He has won "Submission of the Night" 6 times and "Fight of the Night" 4 and 22 wins 18 have been via the Jiu Jitsu.

Jim Miller could keep the fight going to the ground, but it really would not be a problem, Miller also gets along with submitting work. With 12 wins by submission and a black belt in BJJ from Jamie Cruz. The difference here is that Miller enters the octagon with a loss to Nate Diaz and Lauzon with a win against Jamie Varner (and pretty awesome)

Furthermore, Lauzon originally going to fight against Gray Maynard, but due to a knee injury, the replacement was Miller. This could be a determining factor when talking about preparing Lauzon. But either way, this fight promises a lot.

Heavyweight: Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez:

The headliner of the night for the heavyweight belt and also a second edition of these two facing.

On November 12, 2011, Junior Dos Santos knocked out Cain Velasquez, taking not only the "KO of the Night", but also the heavyweight belt, impacting the world.

Junior Dos Santos Almeida has probably the best heavyweight boxing, the work of the hands of Dos Santos is impressive and very hard to match. Many MMA critics say the key to this fight Velasquez is the soil, either by submission or just a lot of takedowns and control on the ground floor with N'Pound something I did not see much in the first fight, but is difficult to understand a fighter like Dos Santos is always different and better prepared for every fight and this being a rematch (and one of the most important of the year) will more than ready Cigano knowing Velasquez desire to resume what some day happened to him.

Respect to Cain Velasquez, a fighter with a lot of experience and recognition too but the grandeur of Dos Santos suggests that unless a new Fedor Emelianenko arrived, JDS will not be dethroned heavyweight if Velasquez does not carry the fight to the ground.

My Pick: Caín Velasquez
