The last we saw of Mark Hunt was his UFC 193 win in Mel­bourne over Big­foot Silva, and he’ll be up in front of a home crowd against an­other Oc­tagon stal­wart, Frank Mir. UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs Mir (Mar 20) in Bris­bane will pit the clas­sic striker-ver­sus­grap­pler bašle, as the Su­per Samoan will try to land on the for­mer heavy­weight champ, best known for gešing Brock Les­nar to tap out way back in UFC 81. Mean­while, on the other side of the fight game, there’s Pac­quiao vs Bradley (Apr 10). All kinds of odd build-up to this one: Manny got in trou­ble for a gay slur, and while this is his first time back in the ring since los­ing to Floyd May­weather a year ago, it’s also meant to be his fi­nal ca­reer bout. The Filipino leg­end has al­ready fought Tim Bradley twice, gešing robbed by de­ci­sion the first time, then whip­ping him the se­cond. But Bradley, im­pres­sive in his win over Bran­don Rios last Novem­ber, should be favoured in this one.
