Each day, The MMA Corner will provide a recap of results, event announcements, fight match- ups, and injuries/cancellations from throughout the world of MMA.

Bader injured, Teixeira to face Te Huna at UFC 160

UFC 160 will see light-heavyweight phenom Glover Teixeira in action, but an injury will prevent Ryan Bader from standing across the Octagon from the Brazilian. With his UFC on Fox 6 win over MMA legend Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Teixeira’s streak extended to 18 wins. However, Teixeira must deal with vaunted striker James Te Huna, who replaces Bader, when he steps into the Octagon on May 25 in Las Vegas. Te Huna recently snapped the 17-fight win streak of Ryan Jimmo at UFC on Fuel TV 7.

UFC reportedly aiming for Super Bowl weekend event on free TV

Take it with whatever a grain of salt takes before it calls itself a grain of salt, but reports indicate that the UFC may break a tradition or two come Super Bowl XLVIII weekend. If the reports ring true, the UFC will head to Newark, NJ for an event slated to air on Fox Sports 1. This defeats speculation of the UFC potentially featuring one card on PPV with another on the new FSN 1 network, but as things often change in the MMA world, so could this potential plan for Super Bowl weekend in 2014.

Brunson-Markes, Silva-Cavalcante to take place at UFC on Fuel TV 10

The UFC on Fuel TV 10 card grows with the addition of two fights. In the light-heavyweight division, Thiago Silva and Rafael Cavalcante return after respective drug test failures and suspensions to combat each other. Meanwhile, at middleweight, Derek Brunson and Ronny Markes come off of unanimous-decision wins to do battle, with Markes’ previous win coming against Andrew Craig, and Brunson’s previous win coming against Chris Leben.

Erik Perez re-ups for six more UFC fights

As Erik Perez prepares to fight Johnny Bedford at UFC 159, his preparation comes with some easy rest. That easy rest stems from Perez’s newly-minted UFC contract, which guarantees six more fights for “Goyito” under the UFC banner. Should Perez keep his streak alive with a win over Bedford and the challenges that lie ahead, this young man could stick around for longer, provided the UFC tells him where to sign.
