Antonio Silva-Mark Hunt On Tap For December’s Australia Return

Mark Hunt shouldn’t have any issues getting to his next fight, as he is being reported for a heavyweight showdown with Antonio Silva in Australia.

The bout would main event a UFC Fight Night card set for December 21 from the country. Combate, a Brazilian news source, first reported the bout, which has yet to lock down a city of venue.

Hunt lives and trains in nearby New Zealand. He had issues getting his visa straightened out prior to a loss vs. Junior dos Santos earlier this year.

Hunt’s four-fight win streak was snapped by the former UFC heavyweight champion, and he has spent several days in the hospital since recovering from a Staph infection.

Silva, meanwhile, is coming off a loss to Cain Velasquez for the UFC heavyweight title. He is 2-3 in his last five fights overall, with two of the defeats coming at the hands of Velasquez.
