Las Vegan Mir to headline Australia card against Hunt

Las Vegan Frank Mir will fight Mark Hunt in the main event of an Ultimate Fighting Championship card on March 19 in Brisbane, Australia.

MMAFighting.com first reported news of the heavyweight bout on Thursday.

UFC Fight Night 84 will take place on March 20 in Australia in order to air on March 19 in the United States on Fox Sports 1.

Mir is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Andrei Arlovski in September that snapped a two-fight winning streak. The 36-year-old Bonanza alum is a former heavyweight champion.

Hunt, 41, knocked out Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in the first round of a November bout in Melbourne, Australia.

The New Zealand native lives in Australia and has a massive following in the country.
