Former two time UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir will finally meet “The Super Samoan,” Mark Hunt on March 19 in Brisbane, Australia on March 19.
The heavyweight scrap is scheduled for five-rounds and will serve as the main event of UFC Fight Night at Brisbane Entertainment Centre which will air on FOX Sports 1.
41-year-old Hunt knocked out Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in less than four minutes in their eagerly anticipated UFC 193 rematch in November, and the Sydney resident would like nothing better than to build on that victory by taking out Mir, whose storied career continues to add compelling chapters, as he’s won two of his last three, knocking out Silva and Todd Duffee.

We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them tick.
