On Thursday, Dec. 5 (Friday, Dec. 6 in Australia), the UFC held the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 33: Hunt vs. Bigfoot which takes place on Friday, Dec. 6 (Saturday, Dec. 7 in Australia) from the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

In the night’s main event, heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva lock horns. The Kiwi Hunt is looking to rebound from a violent knockout loss to former champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 in May. The loss snapped a four-fight winning streak that included three knockouts. Like Hunt, Silva is also hoping to bounce back from a loss at UFC 160. The Brazilian challenged champion Cain Velasquez for the title, but fell via TKO in less than 90 seconds.

The co-main event will feature former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua against another New Zealand native, James Te Huna. Rua is in the midst of the first two-fight losing streak of his career, having lost to recent title challengers Alexander Gustafsson and Chael Sonnen. Te Huna, meanwhile, had a four-fight winning streak of his own put to rest in a submission loss to current No. 1 contender Glover Teixeira in May.

The 11-fight event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET with a single fight streaming live on the promotion’s Facebook and YouTube pages. Four additional bouts will follow on Fox Sports 2 at 7 p.m. ET, with the Fox Sports 1 main card beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
