UFC 160: "Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2" from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, is officially in the books after another action-packed evening (May 25, 2013) of Memorial Day weekend-inspired mixed martial arts (MMA) action.
The main event of the evening, Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva, was a Heavyweight rematch from UFC 146, which took place almost exactly one year ago, with "Brown Pride" notching a dominant first round technical knockout over "Bigfoot." Velasquez repeated history, dropping the Brazilian with straight right hand and the capping it off with a fight-ending ground-and-pound flurry.
In other main card action, Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt exchanged bombs in another high-profile Heavyweight showdown that would inch the winner once step closer to No. 1 contender status. After three rounds of gun slinging, "Cigano" hit a spinning back heel kick in the final minute that dropped the "Super Samoan" and he finished him off with a clean shot to the dazed kiwi's mug.
Glover Teixeira, meanwhile, kept his impressive win streak alive, making quick work of James Te Huna with a first round submission victory and making a case that his name belongs alongside fellow Light Heavyweight title contenders such as Alexander Gustafsson, Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida.
Anyway, as usual, all the stars of the show came to dish the dirt on the event immediately afterward at the post-fight press conference, including Velasquez, Silva, dos Santos, Hunt, Teixeira and T.J. Grant -- who scored a shocking finish of Gray Maynard to punch his Lightweight title ticket -- among others. Naturally, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White -- who almost always emcees the post-fight event wrap up shows -- was also in attendance.
