Cain Velasquez-Antonio Silva, Junior Dos Santos-Alistair Overeem Confirmed For UFC 160

UFC Tonight made a pair of heavyweight bouts for UFC 160 official Tuesday night, as UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will face Antonio Silva.

Also, former UFC champion Junior dos Santos will battle ex-Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem on the Memorial Day weekend event.

Last year, dos Santos was scheduled to defend his title against Overeem on the same holiday weekend, but Overeem was forced out after failing a pre-fight drug test.

Velasquez, who captured his second UFC title by besting “Cigano” this past December, stopped Silva on that same all-heavyweight main card last year.

Overeem lost his shot at the belt when he was defeated by Silva earlier this month.
