On Thursday, May 23, the UFC held a pre-fight press conference for UFC 160 which takes place on Saturday, May 25, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The night’s main event will feature a rematch in the heavyweight division as Cain Velasquez battles Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva for a second time. Velasquez stopped the Brazilian by first-round TKO at UFC 146 last May, but this time the division’s championship belt is on the line. Following the win over Silva, Velasquez battered Junior dos Santos for five rounds to recapture the title, while Silva has dispatched of Travis Browne and Alistair Overeem to earn his shot at the champion.

In the co-main event, dos Santos will take on a resurgent Mark Hunt for the No. 1 contender’s spot in the division. Another No. 1 contender spot is up for grabs in the 155-pound division as Gray Maynard takes on T.J. Grant. Rounding out the pay-per-view main card will be a light heavyweight clash between Glover Teixeira and James Te Huna, as well as a lightweight war between Donald Cerrone and K.J. Noons.

The 12-fight event will kick off at 6:35 p.m. ET with three bouts streaming on the promotion’s YouTube and Facebook pages. Four additional bouts will follow on FX at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight pay-per-view main card starting at 10 p.m. ET.
