UFC 160 Extended Video Preview: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot Silva 2
UFC 160 will take place on Saturday, May 25 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The pay-per-view event will be headlined by a heavyweight title bout that will pit two-time champion Cain Velasquez against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
The Memorial Day weekend card will feature a co-main event that may decide the next challenger for the heavyweight crown, as former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos faces Mark Hunt.
Velasquez (11-1) is coming off a five-round unanimous decision over Dos Santos. That fight was a hugely one-sided affair, with Velasquez earning scores of 50-45, 50-43, 50-44, while leaving Dos Santos titleless and with a badly swollen face.
In his last bout, Silva (17-4) defeated Alistair Overeem in a big way, earning a TKO stoppage at the 25-second mark of the third round of their UFC 156 scrap.
Velasquez and Silva have met in the past. Their May 2012 fight ended with a bloodied Silva falling to Velasquez via first round TKO.
Dos Santos (15-2) saw a 10-fight winning streak come to an end when he lost to Velasquez in December 2012. Hunt (9-7) is riding a four-fight winning streak heading into UFC 160, with his last fight being a “Knockout of the Night” victory over Stefan Struve in early March 2013.
