Las Vegas – Cain Velasquez won a unamimous decision over Junior Dos Santos to reclaim the UFC heavyweight title at UFC 155 Saturday Night, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Velasquez was in control early, knocking the champ down with a big right hand midway through the first round. Velasquez spent most of the match stalking and pounding on Dos Santos, who never fully recovered from the first-round shot that left him bruised and woozy. Velasquez won every round on every judge’s scorecard, avenging his only career loss in front of his hometown.

Dos Santos took the UFC belt away from Velasquez in November 2011 in just 64 seconds, earning a first-round knockout with a huge overhand right in Anaheim, Calif.
