Former HR MMA heavyweight champion, Hunsucker (7-5-0), made his way to the UFC last year and was fed to the wolves right off the bat. In his UFC debut, he faced Tai Tuivasa and in December he took on Justin Tafa, losing both bouts in the first round.
With two losses in the UFC heavyweight division, Hunsucker will now test his skills in the light-heavyweight division as he takes on Pedro.
Pedro (8-3-0) came to the UFC back in 2016. Over the course of his UFC career, he has defeated the likes of Khalil Rountree and Paul Craig. His most recent outing came in April, where he defeated Ike Villanueva via first-round stoppage.
