UFC Fight Night 33: Hunt vs. Silva fight card

USA TODAY Sports

A look at the UFC's return to Australia, which is headlined by a heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva.

The UFC is running 3 events in December, and the first one is in Brisbane, Australia on December 7th (December 6th in North America). Headlining the card is Mark Hunt, who faces recent UFC title challenger Antonio Silva. Hunt was in the co-main event slot under the Bigfoot/Cain Velasquez fight at UFC 160, but found himself on the wrong end of an awe-inspiring wheel kick KO vs. Junior dos Santos.

Mauricio Rua looks to snap out of his sub-par run (2-4 in his last 6 fights) with a win against the heavy-handed James Te Huna. Interestingly enough, all four main and co-main event participants for this card are coming off stoppage losses, with only Hunt advancing past round 1.

A fight I'd keep an eye on is Takeya Mizugaki against Nam Phan, who is dropping to bantamweight for the first time in his career.
