On Thursday, Dec. 27, the UFC will hold a pre-fight press conference for its upcoming UFC 155 event which takes place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 29.

The press conference will feature UFC President Dana White as well as heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, who will defend his belt against the man whom he took it from, former champion Cain Velasquez.
