The New UFC Heavyweight Champion: Junior Dos Santos

Junior Dos Santos brought the fight to Cain Velasquez last night and it only took 1:04 minutes of the first round to become the new UFC Heavyweight champion. Like many who have won their first championship, he was very emotional and you can see it during his celebration, his interview with Joe Rogan, and during the post-fight press conference. You have to give “Cigano” a ton of credit since he just beat what folks considered “a fighter without any weaknesses”.
