UFC Fight Night 142 takes place at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on December 2. The event is headlined by a heavyweight battle between Tai Tuivasa and Junior dos Santos.
According to Ariel Helwani on Wednesday (via Twitter), Mark Hunt has been featured on the card. “The Super Samoan” takes on heavyweight Justin Willis.
In his most recent bout mid September, Hunt was submitted in the first round by Oleksiy Oliynyk at UFC Fight Night in Moscow. An upcoming bout is the last fight on his current UFC contract.
Willis won seven out of eight bouts in total. Riding a three-fight win streak in the UFC, he is coming off a decision win against Chase Sherman earned in April.
As a result, a proposed bout for UFC Adelaide between Mark Hunt and his fellow kickboxer Gokhan Saki is not happening.
In addition, according to ESPN, a light heavyweight matchup between Mauricio Rua and Tyson Pedro is in the works for Fight Night 142. The current lineup can be found below.
