The fight will likely take at UFC 165 in Houston in October.

No date and venue were announced by White, but he did state the event will be in an arena and not the stadium show that was rumored.

The rubber match was setup at UFC 160 last month when Velasquez defeated Antonio Silva by TKO and Dos Santos knocked out Mark Hunt.

The first fight between these two took place at the first UFC on Fox show in November of 2011 with Dos Santos stopped Velasquez in just 64 seconds.

The second fight this past December at UFC 155 had a different result with Velasquez controlling all five rounds and regaining his title by unanimous decision.
