Frank Mir vs. Mark Hunt to headline March UFC Fight Night

Frank Mir and Mark will headline the UFC’s return to Australia with a five-round heavyweight contest March 19 in Brisbane.

FOX Sports’ Nathan Ryan broke the story.

Hunt last fought and won at Melbourne’s UFC 193 in November in a rematch against Antonio Silva. Hunt’s TKO win snapped a two-fight losing streak.

Mir has won two of his last three fights, both by stoppage. His last fight resulted in a controversial loss via decision to Andrei Arlovsk in September at UFC 191.

Mir is a former world champion at heavyweight. Hunt, who lives in Australia, is a former K-1 world kickboxing champion and a former UFC title challenger.
