UFC 160 NewsUFC officials today announced that Ryan Bader (15-3) has been forced to withdraw from a fight scheduled for UFC 160 with Glover Teixeira (20-2), and James Te Huna (16-5) is committed to fight in place in the event of UFC 160 which takes place on May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Te Huna last fought at UFC on FUEL TV 7 in England, where he survived a head kick in the first round against Ryan Jimmo to recover and take the decision win. That victory was in the hands of another hard fought decision victory and a "Fight of the Night" victory over Joey Beltran. In six appearances with the UFC, the only loss came Te Huna by submission to top contender Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 127. Te Huna is now on a four-fight winning streak and is 10-1 in his last 11 appearances. However, a victory over Teixeira undoubtedly be his biggest win to date.

 

Teixeira last fought at UFC on FOX 6, taking a unanimous decision over Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the co-main event. Although a decision was only the fourth time in his career, Teixeira improved to 3-0 in the UFC and beat his biggest rival to date. In his UFC debut at UFC 146 last May, Teixeira impressed with a first-round submission of Kyle Kingsbury, in less than two minutes. then defeated Fabio Maldonado when Jackson was injured and was dominant again, getting a doctor stoppage after two rounds.
