Theage.com is reporting that Ryan Bader is out of his scheduled fight opposite Glover Teixiera at UFC 160 and his replacement is Australia’s James Te Huna. Te Huna is coming off great comeback win against Ryan Jimmo three weeks ago. This is a huge opportunity for the Aussie as Teixeira is ranked #4 on the UFC light heavyweight rankings and even though Te Huna is on a four fight winning streak he is yet to beat a top ten opponent. Hope for a speedy recovery for the TUF season 8 winner as him and his wife just had their second child together four days ago.
