A pair of heavyweights looking to get right back into title contention are rumored for December, as Antonio Silva and Mark Hunt are reported as the main event in Australia.
The card is expected to take place December 21 from “Down Under,” with the two being the headline act. Combate first reported the bout.
Silva (18-5) is coming off a TKO loss to UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. The defeat snapped his two-fight win streak.
Hunt (9-8) had his four-fight win streak snapped by Junior dos Santos this past May, as the former UFC heavyweight champion earned a knockout victory. The New Zealander has also battled a nasty Staph infection that resulted in extended stays in the hospital since.
