UFC Heavyweight Cain Velasquez

Cain Velasquez’s heavyweight championship reign: Take Two. After having his first run abruptly stopped by Junior dos Santos, Velasquez looks to make the first successful title defense of his career against a familiar foe. 

Despite trouncing Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva just last May, the 265-pounders meet again exactly 364 days later. Silva has posted a pair of (T)KO victories since their initial encounter, while Velasquez dominated dos Santos to reclaim his throne.

Speaking of dos Santos, “Cigano” meets Mark Hunt in the card’s co-main event.

UFC 160 takes place May 25 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
