Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2: Power Ranking and Recapping the Main Card Fights
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports
Junior dos Santos

You could make a solid argument that the four hardest hitters in the elite ranks of MMA were in the cage for the co-main and main events on Saturday night at UFC 160.

Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, trying to defend his belt for the first time. Antonio Silva, who just finished knocking out former K-1 standout Alistair Overeem. You had an actual former K-1 standout in Mark Hunt, the big engine that could. And you had Junior dos Santos, the best boxer in the UFC. 

That's not too bad. Know what I mean? And it didn't end there. Combined, the 10 main card fighters can lay claim to nearly 80 striking-related stoppage victories among them.

So there had to be a letdown, right? There had to be a catch. It couldn't actually be as exciting in three dimensions as the paperwork might have us believe. 

But that's why they fight the fights. Here's a ranking of each fight from best to worst, as well as recaps of the action. Keep those hands up.
