UFC 155 in Tweets: Pros react to Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez, Jim Miller vs. Joe Lauzon

Three fights into UFC 155's pay-per-view, it looked like the end-of-the-year blowout was destined to be a disappointing dud. Eight grueling, gory rounds later, that notion had been buried under the a gallon of blood that suddenly coated the Octagon floor.

After a year spent cursing the what ifs, Cain Velasquez returned with a vengeance. No longer hampered by injuries, Velasquez dominated Junior dos Santos en route to a lopsided decision victory to reclaim his UFC heavyweight title and set up a potential rivalry that could churn out classic battles for years to come.

That performance, in addition to an otherworldly ‘Fight of the Year' candidate from co-main eventers Jim Miller and Joe Lauzon, provided the UFC a fitting sendoff for a rollercoaster 2012 campaign. And all along the way, a slew of pro fighters were just as excited as everyone watching at home.
