The UFC 160 event is quickly taking shape as UFC officials have confirmed another fight for the May 25 event set for the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A lightweight bout between hungry up and comer’s Khabib Nurmagomedov and Abel Trujillo will take place.
Nurmagomedov (19-0) was last in action at the UFC on FX 7 event where he dispatched Thiago Tavares with the quickness. It was his third consecutive UFC win.
Trujillo (10-4) burst on the UFC scene in his last bout where he blasted Marcus LeVesseur at the UFC on FOX 5 event. Trujillo has won five consecutive bouts after taking LeVesseur out with some impressive knees to the body.
The UFC 160 event will be headlined by the UFC heavyweight title fight between champion Cain Velasquez and challenger Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. The co-main event will feature former heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos taking on Alistair Overeem.
