In what will surely be a more competitive fight than the first, contender Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva will face off against Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez.

While Velasquez seems to be practically unstoppable when healthy and fully trained moving with the speed and endurance of a Welterweight, Silva is no doubt much better and has improved in all areas since their last meeting just under a year ago.

Both fighters have flashed knockout power and solid conditioning. But that's enough of what I think, check out this extended preview showcasing both fighters and what they're bringing into this match. JDS vs Mark Hunt and Texeira vs Te Huna previews inculded.

    Excellent card. I'm excited for every fight, including the main event (A-hole....) JDS won't be taking Hunt down. When have you seen that? LOL. That's gonna be a slug-fest and a sick, sick fight!!

    Actually JDS vs Hunt might be the best fight on it. Hunt is a boss, and JDS we all know what he's made of. Cinderella man, Hunt FTW.

    I'm not convinced in any way that this main event will be any more competitive than their first meeting.

    No? You think it'l just be a 1st round demolition again? I think it'll be closer for sure. Maybe not a win for Bigfoot, but definitely out of the 2nd maybe 3rd round.

    Another first round demolition is my prediction.

    Good card but i think the two main events are a little bit predictable. Firstly Cain/Bigfoot will be a repeat of their first meeting and the JDS/Hunt fight will be a almost identical to the JDS/Carwin fight.

    Abel Trujillo demolished his last opponent in an awesome fight, looking forward to his fight with Nurmagomedov.

    Cain will beat Bigfoot quite easily. IMO.

    The main event will be different, but not a different outcome. Bigfoot will definitely NOT make his first strike an outside leg kick (what was he thinking?) but if Cain is not afraid to rush in on JDS, he certainly won't be afraid to do it with Bigfoot. Cain by TKO in the 2nd.

    Bigfoot is going to take the UFC 160 HW belt, sounds extremely weird but I don't know why somehow I ********know it.
