While certainly a disappointment, considering dos Santos spent considerable time and energy preparing for Lesnar on the set of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13, fighting for the right to still face division champion Cain Velasquez against a man who shares similar skill and size, has to be somewhat of a relief.
