MicroTech Sponsors Velasquez in UFC 155

Wed, 2012-12-26 14:25 -- nitrous

The first real punch of the fight ended it. With a strong right-hand, Junior “Cigano" Dos Santos knocked out Cain Velasquez in the first minute of round one. The champ was out and the ref made the call. A bewildered Velasquez apologized to fans, vouching to come back and reclaim the belt. This Saturday he aims to do just that. And like before, MicroTech will be his steadfast supporter.
 
MicroTech is sponsoring Velasquez in his fight to regain the heavyweight championship title. As the UFC’s last and biggest event of 2012, Velasquez will face Dos Santos in UFC 155 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight airs live on Pay-Per-View at 10:00 p.m. (ET).
 
“I’m going to take what’s mine,” said a resolute Velasquez in his UFC promotional video.
 
From Salinas, California, Velasquez is the first Mexican-American fighter to win the heavyweight title in Boxing or MMA. His undefeated record was bruised last year when he first went up against Dos Santos in UFC on Fox 1, the UFC’s breakout debut on network television.
 
Dos Santos has a 15 - 1 record and is from Bahia, Brazil. His only loss was to Joaquim Ferreira at the Mo Team League (MTL) Final in 2007.
 
Through MicroTech’s abundant sponsorships of the former champ, MicroTech President & CEO, Tony Jimenez, said they have built a solid relationship. “Cain has a lot of drive,” Jimenez said, “he’s a good friend, a tough fighter, and a true champ. I wish him all the best.”
 
Tune in to Pay-Per-View this Saturday night at 10:00 p.m. (ET) to see the main event: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II!
