UFC 166 fight card: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3

Check out the current card for UFC 166, which takes place on October 19th in Houston, TX.


UFC 166 is pretty much set. The main event will be the third fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title, but there's so much more than that. Daniel Cormier will face off with the re-signed Roy Nelson in another heavyweight bout set for the co-main event. And a bunch of other already-announced bouts should make up the main card.

Former Bellator middleweight champ Hector Lombard will make his welterweight debut against former Strikeforce champ Nate Marquardt. Another former SF champ, Gilbert Melendez, will meet TUF 1 winner Diego Sanchez. And a great middleweight bout between Tim Boetsch and Luke Rockhold was added as well. The bout order isn't set as of yet though.
