Last night’s UFC Fight Night 33 was a night of brutal knockouts and stellar bouts across the board in Australia, with stand-out performances from key players. With several title hopes living or dying by their success, let’s look at how the night played out and who stood out at UFC Fight Night 33.
The promotions third to last event of 2013 will be headlined by a five round (not that it will last that long) main event between heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva. While the New Zealander (Hunt) is the main attraction, the rest of the UFC Fight Night 33 card is filled with local talent, both new & familiar faces.
In revving up their quest for world domination, 2014 will likely be a defining year for the UFC. During their growth over the past 20 years, the promotion has become synonymous not just with mixed martial arts but with the best mixed martial arts has to offer.
The UFC will travel abroad once again this weekend for the UFC Fight Night 33. Instead of Brazil, this time they are touching down in Brisbane, Australia, with a slew of Aussie fighters chomping at the bit to fight on the big show. Our main event features Aussie legend Mark Hunt, as he looks to keep afloat at the top of the division, facing Brazilian monster Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
The winner of The Ultimate Fighter is not always the fighter from that season to have the most success inside the Octagon; Jessamyn Duke could end up falling into that category.
The Nemesis Top Ten is a list of lesser known or much less regarded fighters that would pose a back matchup to a current top ten fighter and potentially pull of the upset.
It was a tremendously poor night of fights, both inside the TUF 18 Finale cage and with the constant bombardment of advertising throughout the evening. The horrible pacing of the show had me almost wishing I’d wasted money on a PPV. Men and women rose and fell with different tidbits catching my eye throughout the night.
With the final episode of The Ultimate Fighter 18 airing earlier this week it’s now time to crown two winners tonight. David Grant and Chris Holdsworth will battle it out in the men’s final, while Julianna Pena and Jessica Rakoczy will look to became the first-ever women’s Ultimate Fighter winner.
