Melbourne, Australia: Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva found resolution to their five-round draw at UFC Fight Night 61 tonight, as Hunt scored a knockout victory at 3:41 of the first round.
UFC 193: Rousey vs. Holm was held on November 15, 2015 at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. Mark Hunt vs. Antônio Silva took place on the main card which aired on PPV in the United States and BT Sport in the UK.
Both men opened with light strikes, attempting to find their range, with Hunt taking the center of the Octagon. Trading kicks, the first half of the round is rather non-eventful as Hunt and Silva clearly have a lot of respect for one another. Hunt begins to open up with his hands and cracks ‘Bigfoot’ with a series of right hands as he crumbles against the cage.
Mark Hunt advances to 11-10-1 in his legendary MMA career, with Antonio Silva dropping to 19-8.Check out our latest podcast episode featuring a conversation with Cortney Casey.
