The UFC has announced a new bout for UFC Fight Night 33. Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and James Te Huna have signed to fight on the UFC’s return trip to Australia. Shogun is riding a two fight losing streak with his most recent loss coming by way of a first submission to Chael Sonnen at the UFC’s launch of Fox Sports 1 in Boston. Te Huna was riding a four fight winning streak until he ran into the capable hands of Glover Teixeira at UFC 160 in Vegas. The bout will be the co main event for the card.
UFC Fight Night 33: Hunt Vs Bigfoot is scheduled December 7, 2013 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the main event, UFC Heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ SIlva will slug it out to see who takes a step up the heavyweight ladder.
