On Friday, March 18 (Saturday, March 19 in Australia), the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 85: Hunt vs. Mir from the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane.

In the night’s main event, former interim heavyweight title challenger Mark Hunt takes on former UFC champion Frank Mir. The 41-year-old Kiwi Hunt scored a big win over Brazilian Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 193 in November. The win snapped a two-fight skid for the striking stalwart. Mir, meanwhile, saw a two-fight winning streak erased in September with a decision loss to Andrei Arlovski. Prior to that, the 36-year-old had scored back-to-back knockout wins over the aforementioned Bigfoot and Todd Duffee.

The co-main event features the return of Cuban welterweight Hector Lombard, who clashes with Colorado-based fighter Neil Magny.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts air on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.

The fighters will hit the scales at 6:30 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
