TORONTO -- Fresh from his KO win over Alistair Overeem, Brazil's Antonio (Bigfoot) Silva has earned a title shot against UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez at UFC 150 on May 25 in La Vegas.

Overeem, meanwhile, will face former champion Junior Dos Santos on the same card.

Silva stopped Overeem (36-12-1) in the third round at UFC 156. Velasquez (11-1) won his title back from Dos Santos (15-2) with a unanimous decision at UFC 155.

The UFC also announced that welterweights Stephen (Wonderboy) Thompson (6-1) and Amir Sadollah (7-4) will fight at UFC 160.
