UFC 146: Dana White Basically Confirms Junior Dos Santos Vs. Cain Velasquez 2

via cdn1.sbnation.com

UFC president Dana White did an interview with MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani for Fuel TV after the post-fight press conference last night, and he gave us a glimpse at what's next for the two biggest winners from last night's UFC 146 event. While he was a bit coy about it at the PC, he came out in this interview and basically confirmed a second bout between UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez was on tap:

Yeah, that's what's next. And not only did he (Cain) look good, he looked lean. Really lean.

The two men first met at UFC on Fox 1 last November, where Dos Santos knocked Velasquez out in just 64 seconds to claim the title. Both men won their UFC 146 bouts last night in dominant fashion and without another surefire challenger in place, they'll go with the rematch. Dana explained what the line of thinking was in regards to giving him another shot with just one win since their last bout:

Well he was undefeated. He was an undefeated champion. He wins a fight, and he gets another shot at Junior.

You can check out the video below the jump, where Dana also talks about the possibility of JDS fighting a Klitschko brother, the Cain/JDS bout taking place in a stadium, and a few other things.
