The popular video game UFC Undisputed 3 is scheduled to be released in early 2012 but, in honor of this weekend’s historic UFC on FOX event, the team at developer THQ ran a simulation pitting Cain Velasquez against Junior dos Santos to give us a virtual rendition of what might happen Saturday night when the two square off in the main event of UFC on FOX 1: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos.
The undefeated Velasquez is returning to the Octagon for the first time since taking the title from Brock Lesnar last October to become heavyweight champion. Eight of his nine wins have come via TKO despite being a decorated amateur wrestler.
Comparably, Dos Santos defeated Shane Carwin to secure his top contender’s spot and holds an overall record of 13-1 including wins over Roy Nelson, Gabriel Gonzaga, Mirko Filipovic, and Fabricio Werdum.
Check out what happened in the virtual gaming world when Velasquez and dos Santos entered the Octagon ahead of what will really go down Saturday night from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California:
