Cain Velasquez vs. Lesnar-dos Santos Winner Possible to Headline UFC 136

Cain Velasquez

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is expected to return from shoulder surgery in the main event of UFC 136 on October 8 in Houston, Texas against the winner of June’s Brock Lesnar-Junior dos Santos matchup, UFC President Dana White said Saturday.

“Probably,” White said after UFC 129. “[I think] that would make a lot of sense.”

Velasquez will face Lesnar or dos Santos as long as the winning Ultimate Fighter 13 coach emerges injury-free from their June 11 meeting at UFC 131 in Vancouver.

A UFC Fan Expo on Oct. 7 and 8 will accompany the UFC 136 fight card.
