Mark Hunt vs. Marcin Tybura headlines UFC’s return trip to Australia

When the UFC returns to the Land Down Under on Nov. 18 (Nov. 19 local time), the event will be headlined by heavy hitters Mark Hunt and Marcin Tybura. The Sydney, Australia UFC Fight Night will be held at the Qudos Bank Arena and the card will air live on FS1.

Poland’s Tybura is riding a three-fight win streak, most recently earning a unanimous decision win over former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in June.  Tybura, the former M-1 heavyweight champion lost his first fight in the UFC via decision to Timothy Johnson but bounced back with a spectacular headkick knockout win over Viktor Pesta, followed by a TKO win over Luis Henrique Barbosa de Oliveira.

Tybura will be facing his stiffest competition yet when he faces “The Super Samoan,” Hunt who is coming off a fourth round TKO over Derrick Lewis back in June.  The 43-year old Hunt will have the support of fans in attendance as he hails from nearby Auckland, New Zealand.

Tybura currently sits at number 10 in the UFC heavyweight rankings while Hunt comes in at number six.
