By FCF Staff
Heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva will apparently look to get back on track against one another, as according to reports, the two have agreed to fight in December.
News of the bout was reported first by Combate.com, which will reportedly take place at a December 7th, UFC Fight Night card in Brisbane, Australia. The UFC has not made any official announcement regarding the proposed bout.
Hunt (9-8) was knocked out by former heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 in May, after winning four straight fights. The feared striker’s last win took place in March, when he stopped Stefan Struve at a UFC on FUEL TV event.
Silva (18-5) is also coming off a stoppage loss at UFC 160, as he was stopped by reigning champ Cain Velasquez at the event. Prior to the defeat, Silva knocked out Alistair Overeem in the third round at UFC 156 in February.
