Heavyweights take centre stage for the next pay-per-view event.
Four men with some of the heaviest hands in the heavyweight division will lock horns as part of UFC 160, headlined by the title bout between Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva.
The rematch between Velasquez and ‘Bigfoot’ shapes as one of differing styles from the biggest men in the octagon.
While both men have power in either hand to end a fight in a heartbeat, the champion Velasquez is able to throw more punches in combinations than his opponent.
However, Silva’s sheer size and toughness makes him a risk to the champion either standing or on the ground, with ‘Bigfoot’ also possessing excellent ground skills by way of his jiu-jitsu black belt.
Velasquez will need the extra cardio he often brings into a fight being a smaller heavyweight, as Silva has shown he is able to earn victories going deep into the third round and further.
To earn his shot at the title, Silva knocked out Alistair Overeem in the third round despite losing the previous two.
In the co-main event at UFC 160 Mark Hunt takes on former UFC champion Junior Dos Santos in a bout that is expected to have number one contender implications for the winner of the last fight of the night.
Dos Santos is looking to build up his credibility in the division to an extent, after being outpointed in dropping the belt to Velasquez at UFC 155.
After what was just his second loss for his career (15-2) and his first inside the octagon, JDS was meant to fight Overeem at UFC 160, before the Dutchman pulled out citing injury.
Enter Mark Hunt.
The Super Samoan has been on a tear in the heavyweight division of late in racking up the longest active winning streak at four.
Left in his path have been the likes of Stefan Struve, Cheick Kongo, Ben Rothwell, and Chris Tuchscherer.
Highlighting his reputation as a finisher of fights, three of those four wins have come inside the distance with the victory against Struve also earning him the knockout of the night, after he overcame an almost comical height difference to land a massive left hook.
No matter who wins in this main event, make sure you don’t look away because both fights could be over in a split second.
