The rematch between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez was originally booked for the main event of 152, but was later withdrawn without comment as to why. Dana White however did say that it "depended on dos Santos" leading people to believe dos Santos is posturing for a fight in Brazil or wants to take time off or recover from an injury.
