Cain Velasquez faces a nearly 20-pound weight and three-inch height disadvantage against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva in UFC 160 Saturday night in Las Vegas.

A year removed from their first bout, and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva will try to gain some revenge on heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez Saturday night in UFC 160 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
 
The Brazilian’s massive size advantage did little against Velasquez’s quick strikes and swift take down that resulted in a first round stoppage one year ago at UFC 146.
 
Since that fateful fight, Velasquez has retained the title of first Mexican-American heavyweight champion in either mixed martial arts or boxing. He originally won his rematch against Junior dos Santos for the belt in December by unanimous decision.
 
The 6-foot-1 240-pound Velasquez hopes for a repeat against the much bigger, and more determined Silva.
 
Silva has won his last two bouts, retaining his top ranking with a TKO over Travis Browne in October and a third-round knockout in UFC 156 over Alistair Overeem three months ago. This will be Silva’s shortest time between bouts since his Strikeforce victories over Fedor Emelianenko and Mike Kyle in December 2010 and February 2011, respectively.
 
That kind of quick turnover, and his more plodding tempo could put Silva once again at a disadvantage to Velasquez’s faster, more technical approach.
 
The fight is scheduled for an 11:45 p.m. start time, but that could move up depending on how the under cards go.
