Mark Hunt continued his knockout-heavy assault on the heavyweight division of UFC when he tangled with Frank Mir in the UFC Fight Night 85 main event last night (Sat., March 19, 2016) inside Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Australia.
Check out the full main event recap here.
"Super Samoan" was coming off of a first-round knockout of Antonio Silva back at UFC 193 in November and he was keen on adding to his finishing total "down under."
The pair dangerous finishers traded shots at a distance, with leg kicks sandwiched in between jabs and hooks. Mir attempted a level change a few times early in round one, but he telegraphed his efforts to get this fight to the mat.
All Hunt needed was one opening and he found one just as Mir ducked. The New Zealander caught him right behind the ear for the walk-off knockout, something he's grown accustomed to.
That's two straight knockouts for Hunt and subsequently two straight losses for Mir.
