UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva 2 fight card shaping up

A look at the early fight card for UFC 160, which will go down on May 25th in Las Vegas.


The UFC's annual Memorial Day weekend card from Vegas is a go for 2013, and it's already looking pretty stacked as usual. The event, which is scheduled for May 25th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, will be headlined by two huge heavyweight fights. In the main event, UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will defend his title against Antonio Silva, who he defeated just nine months ago by TKO. The co-main is a much-anticipated meeting between strikers Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem. Light heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira will also make his return, fighting TUF winner Ryan Bader.

Here's a look at the early card.

May 25th, live on PPV from Las Vegas, NV:

Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva [HW title]
Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem
Ryan Bader vs. Glover Teixeira
Donald Cerrone vs. K.J. Noons
T.J. Grant vs. Gray Maynard
Amir Sadollah vs. Stephen Thompson
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Abel Trujillo
