Heavyweights. Heavy hands. Heavy stakes.
That's how Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is billing the titanic tilt between Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva, which sits atop the UFC 160: "Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2" pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, set to blow the roof off the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 25, 2013.
Rematch or no rematch, that's one helluva staredown.
Bringing up the rear -- but hardly playing second fiddle -- is another colossal clash that pits former 265-pound kingpin Junior dos Santos against Internet darling and surging "Super Samoan" Mark Hunt. A strong finish in this co-main event mash-up will likely send "Cigano" or the stubborn New Zealander into the top spot among title contenders.
Here's a look at their staredown (commence goosebumps).
These fighters (and more) were on hand for today's UFC 160 media day held in "Sin City," in lieu of the promotion's traditional pre-fight press conference. Look for more features, as well as the popular "scrum" videos to come out a little later today.
