Velasquez ready to fight Dos Santos
Fans of MMA will be delighted on Saturday when current UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez jumps into the octagon to defend his title against Junior Dos Santos, a man that currently holds a 13-1 record.

Velasquez went through fights with 2 of the toughest men at the UFC in order to be where he is, but when the moment of the truth arrived, he not only defeated both of his rivals, but he did it quickly and precisely. The first to go down was Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira back at UFC 110, whom Velasquez took down in just 3 minutes of action, and that victory allowed the California native to get a chance for the title against Brock Lesnar at UFC 121.

Lesnar also went down in the first round and even faster than Nogueira, earning Velasquez the title. Now he will go against Dos Santos, whom earned a shot for the belt after defeating Shane Carwin at UFC 131, and “the baddest man on the planet” said in an interview that he is thrilled about the fight and considers Dos Santos as his best opponent yet, mentioning that ”With him, the type of caliber fighters he’s fought, he’s a tough guy; he’s definitely the real deal. It’s going to be a tough fight that night. You’re definitely going to see two of the best out there.”

Haynesworth out, Ochocinco next?
Everybody was expectant about what Albert Haynesworth could bring to the Patriots, and it seems like the experiment didn’t last long as the defensive lineman was cut from the team yesterday after just half a season and no significant contributions (3 tackles and zero sacks in 6 matches). Chad Ochocinco was signed the same day as Haynesworth, and just as the latest, Ochocinco hasn’t contributed a great deal to the franchise all year (no catches in the last three games, only 9 receptions and zero touchdowns), which is why critics are wondering if the Pats are also considering the possibility of cutting him from the team too.

Phillies reconsidering Madson deal
The Phillies are still not sure about counting with the services of Ryan Madson for the upcoming season as they are reconsidering the 4-year deal they were first putting in the table for the relief pitcher that was worth $44 million. Now they are also talking to Jonathan Papelbon and analyzing which of two is more suitable for the team’s future plans.
