UFC 160 Preview: Power Ranking the Fights of Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 160 will be headlined by a heavyweight title bout. In that scrap, two-time champion Cain Velasquez will look to defend his title against a man he has already met and defeated, Antonio Silva. 

The win over Silva came a few months after Velasquez himself tasted defeat for the first time, losing the belt to Junior dos Santos in his first attempted defense.

That blood-soaked victory over Silva set up a rematch with dos Santos. In that five-round bout Velasquez dominated, making the kind of statement many fighters only dream about. 

It makes one wonder if Silva, a heavy underdog going into the May 25 fight card, will be able to pull off a Velasquez moment of his own and avenge his previous defeat. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

To get prepped for the upcoming bout, here's a rundown of the 12 professional (11-1) fights from the career of Mr. Velasquez.
