Light heavyweights Ryan Bader and Glover Teixeira have signed on to be part of the Memorial Day weekend card for the UFC, as officials confirmed the booking late Tuesday night.
UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II goes down May 25 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main event boasts Cain Velasquez defending his UFC heavyweight title against Antonio Silva.
Bader (15-3) is coming off a submission victory over Vladimir Matyushenko earlier this year. The former Ultimate Fighter winner is 8-3 in his Octagon career.
Teixeira (20-2) earned his third straight UFC win by defeating Quinton “Rampage” Jackson last month. Both Teixeira and Bader own wins over the former UFC light heavyweight champion.
