UFC 160 is headlined by a heavyweight title bout against reigning champion Cain Velasquez who will meet Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in a rematch between two of the sport’s biggest stars. Velasquez and Silva previously met at UFC 146, with Velasquez emerging victorious.
Also on the main card is adopted Aussie, Kiwi fighter, James Te Huna, as he takes on the revered Brazilian, Glover Teixeira. Coming into the bout on a four-fight win streak, Te Huna will be looking to propel himself into UFC's top ten light heavyweights when he faces knockout artist Teixeira, currently ranked fourth in the weight division.
Fans should arrive early to watch the preliminary bouts that will include Australia's own Robert Whittaker, welterweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK, as he takes on the victor of The Ultimate Fighter Season 16, Colton Smith.
