The UFC is headed back down under! The UFC announced that Heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva will headline a ‘Fight Night’ card in Brisbane, Australia. The just announced event will take place on Saturday December 7 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. Both Hunt and Silva were riding win streaks going into their last bouts, but came up short on fight night at UFC 160. Silva was finished early in his heavyweight championship fight against Cain Velasquez, and Hunt was finished in highlight reel fashion via spinning back kick against former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
