UFC Fight Night 33 has its co-main event as light heavyweights Maurico “Shogun” Rua and James Te Huna are set to meet December 7 in Brisbane. News of the bout was first announced by The Daily Telegraph and has since been confirmed by the UFC.
Rua and Te Huna will both be looking for a victory after frustrating losses in their previous outings. “Shogun” fell to Chael Sonnen at UFC Fight Night 26 to mark his second loss in a row and his third in his last four fights. Te Huna saw a four fight win streak snapped by the hard-charging Glover Teixeira in a short-notice fight at UFC 160.
UFC Fight Night 33 takes place December 7 at the Brisbane Entertaiment Centre in Brisbane, Australia. The event will be headlined by a heavyweight battle between Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. UFC Fight Night 33 will air live on FOX Sports 1.
