On Friday, Dec. 6 (Saturday, Dec. 7 in Australia) the UFC held UFC Fight Night 33: Hunt vs. Bigfoot from the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

In the night’s main event, heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva locked horns. The Kiwi Hunt was 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 was 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 featured former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua against another New Zealand native, James Te Huna. Rua entered the cage 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 kicked off at 6:30 p.m. ET with a single fight streaming live on the promotion’s Facebook and YouTube pages. Four additional bouts followed on Fox Sports 2 at 7 p.m. ET, with the Fox Sports 1 main card beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
