UFC Fight Night 65: Mark Hunt vs. Stipe Miocic possible for May 10 in Australia

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is looking to add a little hometown flavor to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 65 mixed martial arts (MMA) event "Down Under," scheduled for the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, on May 10, 2015.

That's where portly power puncher Mark Hunt will battle fellow heavyweight slugger Stipe Miocic, according to a report from Combat Press, in a five-round headliner that will likely air online via UFC Fight Pass.

Hunt (10-9-1) is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Fabricio Werdum in the UFC 180 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, one that cost him the division's interim championship, as well as a chance to unify the titles when Cain Velasquez returns from injury.

The good news is, a few big wins and he's right back in the thick of things.

The same can be said for Miocic (12-2), who dropped a razor-thin unanimous decision to former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at the UFC on FOX 13 event last December. Coming up short against "Cigano" snapped a three-fight winning streak.

Who ya' got?

No other bouts have been announced for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 65 event in Adelaide; however, you can expect that to change in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned.
