Unlike other professional sports, there is no offseason in MMA. Week in and week out, fight cards all over the world are taking place. Some weeks there will be major fight cards filled with big name fighters, others not so much, but there are fights taking place every week.

Regardless of whether the fighters are household names or not, The MMA Corner will preview the best fight taking place during the week.

This week’s Fight of the Week is the heavyweight class between Stipe Miocic and Mark Hunt.

On Sunday, May 10, 2015, at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, Australia, two of the UFC’s hardest hitting heavyweights will battle it out in the main event of UFC Fight Night 65.

With both men coming off of losses in their last outings, they will both have extra motivation heading into this bout. The UFC heavyweight division lacks a lot of depth and any fighter with name value is only ever one or two wins away from a title shot. The will of this fight on Sunday will immediately be back in the title picture.

For MMA fans who love toughness and brutal striking, this is the fight to watch. Miocic and Hunt throw everything with bad intentions and they are unafraid of standing in the pocket. Combine that with the fact that both men can take a pretty good shot and this fight has the potential to be a barn burner.

Expect to see beautiful violence when these two step into the Octagon and expect to see someone get finished.
