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. A 265-pound shootout with former champ Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt serves as the co-main attraction.

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