We are so close to the fights of UFC 160 that I can nearly taste it, I am so pumped that I woke up in the middle of the night armbarring my girlfriend. I kid, but seriously, this is a huge night of fights for the UFC and more so for the Heavyweights. Mark Hunt will look to prove his worth against his biggest challenge to date-Junior dos Santos.
Cain Velasquez will square of for the second time against Bigfoot Silva in the main event, also on the card-Donald Cerrone, KJ Noons, Glover Teixeira, James Te Huna and many more. So join me here, on Lowkick, from 10PM ET Saturday May 25th for the live play-by-play and discussion of UFC 160's main card. It's going to be AWESOME!
A great night of fights so far! Stand by for the main card! Wow JDS has been working on his English! Anyone wanna bet that at least 80% of this main card ends in knockout?

GT passes guard now he is standing, but GT sinks in a Guillotene, and it is over James Te Huna taps out in round 1! just like that! And Mike Tyson is in the ring with Teixeira (possible paralell universe alert) and Teixeira is looking like way more than hype. Teixeira says having Mike Tyson here is better than winning.
