UFC Fight Night 85 take place today at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The card aired on FOX Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
In the main event former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir had his hands full with local favorite, Mark Hunt.
It was a short night for Mir as he was stopped by Hunt via strikes inside the first round.
UFC Fight Night 85 featured a co-main event in the welterweight division as Hector Lombard takes on Neil Magny.
It looked as if Magny was going to be defeated early on as Lombard pounded away on his face but he weathered the storm and at the end of round two when the fight should have been stopped in the favor of Magny, it wasn’t. The referee had afforded Lombard the same opportunity he did Magny. But finally, in the third, the fight was stopped and Lombard laid on the canvas in defeat.
Leslie Smith returned to the UFC octagon for the first time since November 2014 when her cauliflower ear literally exploded at the hands of Jessica “Evil” Eye. Also, Rin Nakai, who last fought against Miesha Tate back in September 2014. The two bantamweights would fight to a decision with Smith getting the nod.
