A few weeks ago, UFC president Dana White stated that a UFC heavyweight championship rematch between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez was likely going to happen at UFC 152 in Toronto on September 22nd. There was talk that Cain might have a broken hand that would delay the bout, but his coach Javier Mendez denied that he was injured and even posted a video of him sparring. The title fight looked to be penciled in. Until last night, when Dana told the media that it probably wasn't going to happen there:

"Yes, that fight will happen. I don't know when and I don't know where. That is going to depend on Junior. The fight will happen, but probably not in Toronto."

It's interesting that he said it was going to depend on Junior. That seems to indicate that there's nothing wrong with Velasquez. Is the champ injured in some way? Would he prefer to fight on a rumored Rio show on October 13th intead? It's all idle speculation for now, but it does look like Toronto needs a new main event.
