Now that UFC 159 is officially in its rear-view mirror, the Octagon has turned its attention towards its next pay-per-view broadcast. “UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot II” goes down May 25 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. A heavyweight rematch between champion Cain Velasquez (pictured) and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva headlines the gig. Velasquez quickly disposed of the Brazilian in their initial encounter.

The PPV broadcast starts at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
