UFC Fight Night 65 This Saturday

June 19, 2015

After a rare off week for the UFC and the obvious super fight last weekend, the UFC is back this Saturday live for the first time in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia with UFC Fight Night 65, Miocic versus Hunt. In the main event, the number 4 ranked heavyweight Stipe Miocic takes on heavy-handed number 5 ranked Mark Hunt.

Hunt has the crowd on his side, calling New Zealand his home, and he’ll need it to defeat the younger Miocic. Both fighters are off of loses to the top of the division so this is important to see who stays and who drops. And any fight that Mark Hunt is in can lead to fireworks with his knockout power.

Brad Tavares takes on Robert Whittaker in the co-main event welterweight battle. Whittaker is also local with Tavares hailing from the United States. This is an opportunity for both fighters to show their stuff on the big stage.

Other fights on the main card include Australian Anthony Perosh against American Sean O’Connell and Australian Jake Matthews takes on James Vick.

You can catch the preliminary card on UFC Fight Pass at 7:45pm ET and the main card at 11:00pm ET on Fight Pass as well.

VFD gives brands the opportunity to capitalize on the growing popularity of MMA and the UFC. The UFC’s popularity continues to grow, adding a new great city to their already long list like Adelaide. It should be a great event a great night for South Australian MMA.
