The rubber match between UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos (16-2 MMA, 10-1 UFC) and ex-titleholder Cain Velasquez (12-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) is expected to take place in October in Houston, likely at UFC 166.

UFC President Dana White today laid out the plans at UFC 161's open workouts in Winnipeg.

Although a date and venue weren't given for the title fight, it'll take place in an arena, not a stadium such as Cowboys Stadium. That makes Toyota Center, which hosted UFC 136 in 2011, a strong possibility.

Despite the smaller venue, the pay-per-view event is likely to be a big one for the UFC.

I think the hope was to pair this fight with a Jones/Silva superfight and put it in Cowboys stadium

Yes, he won the title by first round KO, but Velasquez won the rematch by unanimous decision.
