The UFC 160 card has incurred another change, as according to multiple reports, light-heavyweight Ryan Bader has been forced to withdraw from his bout with Glover Teixeira due to a knee injury. James Te Huna will take Bader’s place.

Te Huna (16-5) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Ryan Jimmo at a UFC on FUEL card last month to record his fourth straight win. The only man to defeat the Australian resident in his last 10 bouts is rising contender Alexander Gustafsson.

Teixeira (20-2), meanwhile, scored a unanimous decision win over “Rampage” Jackson at UFC on FOX 6 in January to record his 18th victory in a row.

UFC 160 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, on May 25th, and will feature heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez taking on Antonio Silva in the main event.

Recently the promotion announced that Mark Hunt, instead of the injured Alistair Overeem, will fight Junior dos Santos at the event.
