The lineup for UFC 160 produced everything a Memorial Day Weekend event should – the canvas was painted red, the action white-hot, and the bruising blue. There were upset wins for George Roop and T.J Grant, knockouts for Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, and much more to make the evening a memorable one in 2013.

Though many fans watched the show on a flat screen, or even from a seat in the arena, few if any had a chance to sit ringside to get a close-up perspective of the pairings. Thanks to the fine folks at USA Today Sports, readers can take a look back as the festivities from just that locale with a series of shots pulled from their catalog of images.
