Next week James Te Huna (16-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC) meets fellow contender Glover Teixeira (20-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in a pay-per-view main-card bout at UFC 160.

It’s a chance for Te Huna, who’s ranked No. 15 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA light-heavyweight rankings, to move further up the contender list and even supplant Teixeira, who’s ranked No. 7.

Te Huna, a New Zealander and veteran of the Australian fight circuit, enters the May 25 bout with a four-fight win streak, as well as a 10-1 record in his past 11 bouts going back to 2008. Among those wins is a July 2012 victory over hard-hitting ex-heavyweight Joey Beltran.

The fight, which co-headlined UFC on FUEL TV 4, is now available in its entirety thanks to FUEL TV.

Check out the above clip to see the full bout and the depth of Te Huna’s striking skills.
