The UFC’s year-end event, which tends to be a grandiose affair, has found its home for 2012. UFC 155 will emanate from the MGM Grand Gardens Arena on December 29, as the last five year-end events have.
Anchoring the bill will be a rematch for the UFC Heavyweight Championship as Junior Dos Santos once again faces off with the man he wrested the belt from last November, Cain Velasquez. Co-headlining the card will be the ostensible middleweight title eliminator between Chris Weidman and Tim Boetsch, who battle it out for the right to face the champion, Anderson Silva. Speaking of “The Spider”, his career rival Chael Sonnen will be making the trek up to 205 lb. for his light heavyweight debut against Forrest Griffin.
