UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva 2 fight card

Cameron Spencer

A look at the May 25th UFC event in Las Vegas, a PPV card headlined by Cain Velasquez's heavyweight title defense against Antonio Silva.

Antonio Silva's massive upset win over Alistair Overeem significantly changed the landscape of the heavyweight division. UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez now fights Bigfoot in a rematch of their one-sided slaughter last May. Overeem was due to face Junior Dos Santos at UFC 160, but an injury to Overeem means that Mark Hunt is within touching distance of a title shot. In 2013. You better believe it.

Other big fights on the May 25th PPV include Glover Teixeira against James Te Huna, Donald Cerrone against K.J. Noons, and Gray Maynard versus T.J. Grant. Maybe one of the hidden gems for best fight on the card is veteran Mike Pyle against Icelandic welterweight prospect Gunnar Nelson.
