With Alistair Overeem out of the picture to face JDS at UFC 160, due to a torn hamstring. The UFC has decided that Mark Hunt will take the big mans place at UFC 160 on May 25th. The event, which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV will be headlined by Cain Velasquez vs Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva. This will be Cain’s first title defense since regaining the belt by defeating Junior Dos Santos in their second fight.
Junior dos Santos vs Mark Hunt really poses some interesting questions for the heavyweight division including whether or not the winner of the fight will get to meet the champion at the next title fight or whether there are more matchups that need to be made before determining a clear number one contender. Either way the fights at UFC 160 are already looking like some seriously intriguing matches.
