UFC 160: "Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2" airs live on May 25, 2013, and from top to bottom, the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) fifth pay-per-view (PPV) event of 2013 is arguably the most stacked yet.
Velasquez (11-1) is coming off a five-round drubbing of Junior dos Santos at UFC 155 in Dec. 2012 in what was the beginning of his second championship reign in the heavyweight division.
The American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product failed to defend the gold during his last run as champion and will look to avoid repeating history in "Sin City."
Silva (18-4) stunned the world in his last outing when he came back from a two-round deficit to knock out Alistair Overeem in the third round at UFC 157. The victory was impressive enough to earn "Bigfoot" a shot at the belt even though he lost to Velasquez just two fights ago.
Despite the one-sided defeat to Velasquez exactly one year ago, the Brazilian is highly confident going into the rematch and expects the fight to play out very differently from the first.
After the recent UFC on FX 8: "Belfort vs. Rockhold" event in Brazil, UFC play-by-play man Jon Anik and color commentator Kenny Florian broke down the heavyweight championship contest that is set to serve as the main event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
