If you’re a fan of watching heavyweight bouts that feature two talented / dangerous strikers, then you’ll be happy to hear that a fight between Stipe Miocic and Mark Hunt is reportedly in the works.

On Tuesday, Combat Press reported that sources have informed the outlet that the UFC is hoping to book Hunt-Miocic for a May 10th card in Adelaide, Australia. Sources have also told MMA Fighting.com that the promotion is trying to sign the fight for the event’s headliner.

Hunt (10-9-1) will be looking to get back on track after he was stopped by interim champ Fabricio Werdum in November. Prior to that the New Zealand fighter scored a walk off, KO win over Roy Nelson in September.

Miocic (12-2) had his three fight winning streak snapped by Junior dos Santos in December, as the American was decisioned by the former champ at UFC on FOX 13.

So, that’s a pivotal, heavyweight fight that definitely looks good on paper no? Hopefully the UFC gets it done.
