Gary A. Vasquez — USA TODAY Sports

UFC 166 is gearing up to be one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year. Headlining the card will be a heavyweight championship bout between current champ Cain Velasquez and heavy-hitter Junior Dos Santos. This championship bout will be a trilogy fight, where each fighter has been able to get impressive victories over each other.

In the first outing, JDS was able to land a devastating shot to Cain, which sent him to the canvas. Cain was unable to recover, allowing JDS to become the new heavyweight champ of the word. The second fight turned out to very different, as Cain was able to rock JDS with punches and dominate him all five rounds on the ground. It was a beating that JDS is looking to avenge, and it appears he wasn’t completely healthy going into the rematch.

Now, both fighters are looking to prove once and for all who the best heavyweight on the planet is, and this fight has the makings to be yet another classic. There are a lot of questions coming into this epic trilogy bout. How will JDS fight if he is completely healthy? Will Velasquez be able to elude the heavy shots from JDS like he did in the rematch?

Both are hungry and determined to prove that they have what it takes to beat each other at UFC 166, and it’s going to be very intriguing to see what tactics they try to employ come fight night.

So, will Cain prove he is the best heavyweight in the world, or will JDS get his heavyweight strap back? Stay tuned!
