The UFC made it official yesterday by announcing UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs. Hunt for December 7 in Brisbane, Australia. The previously rumored bout between Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and New Zealander Mark Hunt will headline the Australian card at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
The UFC last traveled to Australia for UFC on FX 6, with TUF: Smashes‘ coaches George Sotiropolous and Ross Pearson settling their differences with the Brit winning in dominant fashion. The card also featured the lightweight and welterweight finals of TUF: Smashes.
The December 7 fight card will be the UFC’s fifth trip to Australia and the third city the promotion has visited. More bouts for the winter card are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets for the card will go on sale October 10 at 9AM AEST.
