"We were expecting a tougher Junior this time," said Velasquez. "Sometimes he beat me to the punch and sometimes I beat him. He was tougher on the takedowns this time, too."
Having now gone 2-1 against dos Santos, Velasquez doesn't anticipate meeting him in the cage again anytime soon.
"I think it'll be done for a while," he said. "Maybe five years down the line, we'll fight again, but not right now."
Dos Santos eventually succumbed to Velasquez's punishment in the fifth round, but he only lasted that long due to incredible heart. UFC president Dana White said at the press conference that he wished the fight actually would've been stopped earlier out of concern for dos Santos' health.
"I think we've learned that Junior Dos Santos has the most unbelievable chin and heart I've ever seen," said White. "I think that fight should have been stopped in the third round. I believe the two best heavyweights in the world are Cain and Junior."
