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 inBrisbane.
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.
