The events of UFC 160 on Saturday night have set into motion affirmative talk of the heavyweight fight most fans wanted in the first place: Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos 3.

The two first fought at UFC on Fox 1 in November 2011, with Dos Santos taking Velasquez's title in 64 seconds. Velasquez then took the title back in December 2012 with a five-round classic.

With Velasquez stopping Antonio Silva in the first round at UFC 160, and Dos Santos stopping Mark Hunt in the third round, the two will go at it for a third time at a future date.

Embedded below are the post-fight videos from Velasquez, Dos Santos and UFC president Dana White.
