The Kiwi and thorough fan-favourite will make the short trip from Sydney to take on Justin Willis for the co-main event in Adelaide. Mark Hunt steps out for his 18th UFC fight and potentially his last. Although he has often come up short against monsters in the heavyweight division, he rarely has the fans rooting against him with his uncompromising style.

Willis makes only his 4th UFC appearance and will be well-aware of the threat and weaknesses of the veteran. Willis lost his first professional fight but has responded with seven straight wins and will be confident of adding ‘The Super Samoan’ to his record.


We know Hunt will take his time and wait patiently to unleash his heavy artillery. He will look to walk into the pocket, back his chin and counter any attack with venomous power and if he does connect, it will be game over for Willis.

What Willis knows however, is that this is the sole weapon to defend against and he will have a game plan to combat the threat. He has obvious knockout power but training with the grappling beasts at AKA, he will be preparing to take Hunt down and keep him there for the duration of the fight. However, his natural urge to stand and trade could be his undoing.

Winner: Hunt via KO/TKO
