The man UFC president Dana White claimed nobody wanted to fight has manged to land his third Octagon opponent. According to ESPN.com, Glover Teixeira will battle Ryan Bader (Pictured) at UFC 160.
The event takes place May 25th inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Teixeira is prefect through his last 18 scraps, a torrid span that began in May 2006. The Brazilian defeated Kyle Kingsbury, Fabio Maldonado and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, respectively, under the UFC’s bright lights.
Bader was last seen in January submitting Vladimir Matyushenko, and possibly retiring the 42-year-old veteran. “Darth” has won three of his last four bouts, with his lone blemish during his current run coming in a highlight reel KO to Lyoto Machida at UFC on FOX 4.
Here is UFC 160′s current roster:
Stephen Thompson vs. Amir Sadollah
KJ Noons vs. Donald Cerrone
Ryan Bader vs Glover Teixeira
Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem
Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Cain Velasquez (UFC heavyweight champion)

You wouldn’t know it but arguably the greatest American fighter in MMA history is fighting at UFC 157. If you listened to Dana White you’d probably think I meant Ronda Rousey. Nope, I am talking about Dan Henderson.
Dana White always advises his fighters to not turn down a fight inside the Octagon, but sometimes a man has to do what a man has to do. This was the case for Tarec Saffiedine, new and last strikeforce welterweight champ, who has found himself out of a big fight at UFC 158 and the man he defeated for the Strikeforce belt, Nate Marquardt, in against Carlos Condit after Rory MacDonald...
