When Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva first fought at UFC Fight Night in Australia on December 7th, 2013, the two heavyweights engaged in an all-time classic back-and-forth war. Fittingly, it ended in a draw, and they looked to determine a winner in tonight's rematch. Hunt came into this bout on a two-fight losing streak, while Bigfoot had just ended his own skid with a win over Soa Palelei.

Silva landed a sharp counter as Hunt was coming in, but seconds later Hunt decked Bigfoot with a right hand just behind the ear, and two more rights shut Bigfoot down for good.
