Teixeira vs Bader, Cerrone vs Noons added to UFC 160

It looks like UFC 160 is shaping up into a pretty solid card thus far. You had questions regarding matchups folks and the UFC has nothing but answers for you.

For those of you who wanted to know what was next for Light-heavyweight prospect Glover Teixeira after thrashing Quinton “Rampage” Jackson for three rounds, the UFC has announced that he’ll be taking on Ryan “Darth” Bader. For those of you interested in what’s next for Donald Cerrone after his quick and decisive loss to Anthony Pettis, he’ll be taking on UFC newcomer and former Strikeforce contender KJ Noons.

Both fights should be interesting, all four fighters are exciting to watch and extremely durable, especially KJ Noons who was a former pro boxer and will make his debut after a split decision loss to Ryan Couture.

UFC 160 takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 25th, 2013. Cain Velasquez defends his UFC heavyweight strap against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in the night’s main event, Junior dos Santos faces off against Alistair Overeem in the Co-main event and Stephen “Wonder Boy” Thompson faces Amir Sadollah.

The official fight card thus far is as follows:

Cain Velasquez vs Antonio Silva

Junior dos Santos vs Alistair Overeem

Glover Teixeira vs Ryan Bader

Donald Cerrone vs KJ Noons

Stephen Thompson vs Amir Sadollah

    I think they're trying to get rid of Cerrone lol. He better not try to stand and trade with Noons though.

    Looks like Bader may get knocked back down the ladder too. Does Glover have good TDD ? Only watched a couple of his fights, and know he has good boxing, heard he was a beast , so I assume Baders only chance outside of the punchers, is wrestling.

    This is a great match for Glover, if he can' deal with Bader's wrestling he would never go far in the division or even have a chance against Jones so good for him to fight a top wrestler now while early in his UFC career – proving his TDD against Bader would heavily add to his hype and prove his skillset.

    Noons has a chance against Cowboy as when he's on he is a deadly fighter but I think he is past his prime and this will be a replay of the Cerrone/Stephens

    Can Overeem really have any chance against JDS? To me it looks like AO won't be able to take him down, and after watching his last fight with BF his stand up will be overshadowed alot by JDS. Ya the two are coming off losses and it seems like the right thing for the UFC to do, basically my question is, has AO any chance against JDS. (I think not). Still I'm looking forward to this fight.
