Another heavyweight fight is headed to Adelaide, Australia.
The fight represents a bit of a changing of the guard at heavyweight. It would mark the final one on Hunt's contract and the first of a new four-fight deal that Willis recently signed.
The 44-year-old Hunt (13-13-1, 1 NC) lost via submission to Aleksei Oleynik earlier this month, while the 31-year-old Willis (7-1) is coming off a unanimous decision over Chase Sherman in April. The win marked Willis' seventh in a row.
Considering Hunt's public criticism of the UFC over the past two years -- as well as his pending lawsuit against the promotion, UFC president Dana White and Brock Lesnar, stemming from Lesnar's failed drug test after UFC 200 -- it is very likely this fight will mark the end of Hunt's UFC run, though Hunt does plan on continuing his career regardless of the outcome, sources said.
