Main Event Set For UFC Fight Night: Sydney


A heavyweight division attraction is going to be headlining the UFC Fight Night: Sydney card as #6 Mark Hunt faces #10 Marcin Tybura.

Hunt (13-11-1-1NC) has won just one of his last three fights under the UFC banner, with that lone win coming over Derrick Lewis at UFC Fight Night 110. Hunt has previously challenged for the UFC Interim Heavyweight Title, losing to Fabricio Werdum in the main event of UFC 180. Hunt has seen his last eight fights all end via a finish and it has been over four years since one of his fights went the distance.

Tybura is also a longtime veteran of the M-1 Challenge promotion, winning seven of the eight fights he competed at in the organization.
