UFC president Dana White has confirmed to ESPN that Heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez will face Junior dos Santos at UFC 166 on October 19, 2013. The fight takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and will air live on pay-per-view (PPV).

The two already have quite an action-packed history. Dos Santos clubbed Velasquez unconscious in 64 seconds to take the title at their first meeting at UFC on Fox 1 in November of 2011. Then last December at UFC 155, Velasquez got his revenge, pasting JDS for 5 long rounds that saw him win every round on every judge's card for one of the most one-sided decisions in UFC history.
