Thanks to FightLine.com for the following recap:

JDS enters the arena to the Rocky theme song and a chorus of boos, bouncing and looking ready to go. The crowd switches to cheers when Velasquez’s mariachi music hit the speakers. Big John McCarthy will be the third man in the cage for tonight’s main event, a battle for the UFC heavyweight championship.

Round 1: No glove touch to start, dos Santos takes the center. Velasquez gets off first with a leg kick. Dos Santos countering well while Velasquez looks to weaken his legs. Dos Santos avoids a takedown. Velasquez putting the pressure on now with kicks. Dos Santos drops Velasquez with an overhand right and follows up with a series of left hands that put him out cold. Big John steps in and calls it.

Just like that, is your new UFC heavyweight champion.

Junior dos Santos defeated via TKO (strikes) at 1:04 of round 1

An emotional dos Santos celebrates the new belt around his waist. “I have no words to say what I’m feeling,” said dos Santos. “It’s amazing, my life. I wanna say thank you to my team and family, I got a lot of good people around me.”

“I think Cain Velasquez was for sure my toughest opponent,” he added. “I was afraid to fight with him, because he’s very tough. I was not one hundred percent for this fight, so I was scared.”

“I just want to say sorry to all the fans, my family and friends that I disappointed you,” said Velasquez. “I’m much more than this. I will come back and I will get this belt back, for sure.”

“He kinda messed up my equilibrium,” he continued. “It was a good shot, he has a lot of power. I waited too much for him. He went in and did what he was supposed to do, my hat’s off to him tonight.”

    First off I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in
    getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
    wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
