Mark Hunt To Face Marcin Tybura At UFC Sydney Show In November

Mark Hunt will attempt to end yet another impressive heavyweight winning-streak on November 19th, when he takes on Marcin Tybura in the headline attraction of UFC Fight Night 121 in Sydney. 

The UFC made the bout, which was initially reported by LowKing.pl over the weekend, official on Monday.

Hunt rebounded from a brutal stoppage defeat to Alistair Overeem by scoring a fourth-round TKO victory over Derrick Lewis, who had won his previous six bouts, in June.

Tybura’s recent run hasn’t been quite as lengthy as Lewis’s, but the Pole has won three straight since dropping a decision to Timothy Johnson in his UFC debut. His most recent win came at UFC Fight Night 111 back in June, when he outpointed former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski over three rounds.

Hunt is a massive draw down under and this will be his fourth time headlining a card in Australia since he debuted in the UFC back in 2010. His bout with Lewis, was also the main event of a UFC Fight Night card in his nearby homeland of New Zealand.
