A light-heavyweight matchup between contenders Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader has been agreed to for UFC 160 on May 25.

Sources confirmed the booking to ESPN.com on Tuesday. UFC 160 is expected to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Teixeira (20-2) will take an 18-fight win streak into the May contest. The Brazilian is 3-0 since joining the UFC last year. His latest victory came via unanimous decision over Rampage Jackson at a UFC on Fox event last month.

Bader (15-3) also earned a win on that January card, submitting Vladimir Matyushenko in the first round. The 29-year-old has gone 3-1 in his previous four fights after dropping back-to-back losses to Tito Ortiz and Jon Jones.
