James Te Huna vs. Glover Teixeira booked for UFC 160 with Ryan Bader hurt

Cameron Spencer

Unfortunately, an injury has forced another change in the UFC 160 bout line-up, as Ryan Bader pulled out of his scheduled fight against Glover Teixeira. "Darth" will be replaced by James Te Huna, who steps into the contest on a four-fight winning streak.

See ya later, Ryan Bader.

Another injury has caused a shake-up for UFC 160's main card, as Australian newspaper The Age brings word that "Darth" has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled light heavyweight bout against Glover Teixeira.

Taking his place on the May 25 pay-per-view (PPV), scheduled for the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be James Te Huna, a quickly-rising Aussie slugger who is currently on a four-fight winning streak.

Te Huna, whose most recent loss came at the hands of top 205-pound contender Alexander Gustafsson, is taking a big opportunity here, as he'll look to steal the hype surrounding the surging Teixeira, who comes into this bout on a very impressive 18-fight winning streak, making this bout one with some major implications for both men.

Could a future title contender emerge from the "Sin City" fallout?

Both of these men are known for their powerful striking, but they also boast impressive ground games, as well. Even though it's unfortunate to see another injury affect UFC 160 (like this one), this will definitely be a terrific fight between two combatants who are known to throw some big punches.

Who gets knocked out on fight night?

UFC 160 will feature the second showdown between UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez and 265-pound "Bigfoot" Antonio Silva. Former division kingpin Junior dos Santos will try to get back into the title picture against Mark Hunt while Gray Maynard makes his case for another run at the 155-pound title opposite T.J. Grant.
