Saturday night's UFC 160 fight card will be headlined by a heavyweight title match between Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva.

The pairing marks a rematch of a prior fight less than a year ago, which Velasquez utterly dominated. He later went on to recapture the heavyweight crown from nemesis Junior Dos Santos, who will also compete at UFC 160.

Silva's road to redemption began with a victory over Travis Browne, continued with a shocking come-from-behind knockout win over Alistair Overeem and ends tonight at the MGM Grand. Whether it ends in success or failure remains to be learned, but if you keep your browser here, learn it you will.

That's because Bleacher Report will be keeping you posted on all things Velasquez vs. Silva throughout the night, including pre-fight hype, play-by-play coverage and live post-fight reaction.

Please note that this blog will follow UFC 160's main event exclusively. For coverage of the larger event, tune it to the Bleacher Report's full event coverage blog.
