It seems that last years Memorial Day all-heavyweight main card must've been a success in the eyes of the UFC brass. This year we will be getting heavy once again, well, at least top heavy.  Sitting atop the UFC 160 pay-per-view portion of the promotions yearly Memorial Day offering will be a rematch between last years co-main event participants Cain Velasquez and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva. Silva's crushing KO of Alistair Overeem at UFC 156 was apparently enough to get him back into the cage with the same man that absolutely obliterated just one year ago. Can "Bigfoot" shock the world for a third time? The co-main event of the evening will feature former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos against the man who was next in line to face him if history would've played out like everyone assumed it would - Alistair Overeem.  Wins for Velasquez and JDS set up the 3rd match of the inevitable heavyweight trilogy everyone is clamoring for. The three other possible situations; a Overeem vs. Silva rematch, a Cain vs. Overeem title bout, or even a Silva vs. JDS scrap for the heavyweight strap - you can sign me up for all of them.
