Typically, overseas UFC events tend to bring spectacular finishes with them.
Some credit the use of the “smaller” Octagon, while others look to the travel issues and demands put on fighters.
Either way, this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 65 event has the makings to follow suit, with some of the best finishers in the promotion taking to the cage.
Here’s a look at three of the more important and can’t-miss fights set for Australia and UFC Fight Pass:
Mark Hunt vs. Stipe Miocic
It’s hard to argue that the main event is not going to be the “people’s main event,” as heavyweights Mark Hunt and Stipe Miocic hit the Octagon.
Hunt is coming off a loss to Fabricio Werdum for the interim UFC title, but owns seven knockout wins among his 10 career victories. That includes finishes of Roy Nelson, Stefan Struve and Ben Rothwell.
Miocic, meanwhile, had won three in a row before falling to former champion Junior dos Santos this past December. The Ohio native has topped the likes of Nelson, Fabio Maldonado and Gabriel Gonzaga.
The odds of this one going a full 25 minutes are slim-to-none, but Miocic-JDS last year did reach five rounds.
