Hunt vs. Tybura headlines Sydney event

Heavyweight contenders collide in Sydney on Nov. 18 (Nov. 19 local time), as Aussie hero Mark Hunt looks to build on the momentum of his June stoppage of Derrick Lewis when he takes on rising star Marcin Tybura in the main event of UFC Fight Night at Qudos Bank Arena.

The card will air live on FS1.

Polish powerhouse Tybura has soared into the heavyweight top ten on the heels of consecutive wins over Viktor Pesta, Luis Henrique and Andrei Arlovski that have made him a serious threat for world title honors. But to move closer to that goal, the No. 10-ranked contender must first get past one of the most feared strikers in MMA history in the No. 6-ranked Hunt. Fresh from a fourth-round finish of Lewis, his seventh KO since joining the UFC roster in 2011, "The Super Samoan" has the power and experience to crush Tybura's championship dreams with one swing of his fist.
