The injury bug continues to his UFC 160 on May 25th in Las Vegas as Ryan Bader is out of his bout against Glover Teixeira and replacing Bader in the bout will be James Te Huna.
UFC officials announced the change on Monday night and the bout is scheduled to take place on the main card on pay-per-view.
Te Huna (16-5) is currently on a four fight winning streak and has won five of his six fights in the UFC. During his four fight winning streak, he has two wins by knockout in the first round and won the fight of the night bonus in his decision win against UFC on FUEL TV 4 against Joey Beltran.
He most recently defeated Ryan Jimmo at UFC on FUEL TV 7 in London, which he won by unanimous decision. After being stunned in the first round, he was able to recover and do enough in the second and third rounds to get the victory.
Teixeira (20-2) has not been defeated since 2005 and has won his first three fights in the UFC. He made his long awaited debut in the UFC last year and defeated Kyle Kingsbury by submission in the second round.
He defeated former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 6 and it was the biggest win of his career. It was the first time since 2010 that he went the distance and he has only done the distance four times in his career.
UFC 160 takes place on May 25th from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be headlined by Cain Velasquez defending the UFC heavyweight title against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
