A heavyweight matchup between legendary slugger Mark Hunt (11-10-1 MMA, 6-4-1 UFC) and submission ace and former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (18-10 MMA, 16-10 UFC) will headline UFC Fight Night 84.

MMA Fighting first reported the potential matchup, and MMAjunkie subsequently confirmed that the fight was being discussed for the card. UFC officials then informed Australia’s Herald Sun that the fight is the card’s headliner.

UFC officials have yet to make any formal announcements.

UFC Fight Night 84 will take place at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Australia. The event, which is expected to air on FOX Sports 1, takes place on Sunday, March 20, in Australia, but airs on Saturday, March 19, in North America due to the time difference.

A native of nearby New Zealand, Hunt’s previous two UFC appearances have also taken place in Australia. Most recently, “The Super Samoan” scored a first-round TKO win over Antonio Silva at November’s UFC 193 event at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium. The victory snapped a disappointing two-fight losing streak for Hunt after falling short against Stipe Miocic and Fabricio Werdum in previous outings.

Meanwhile, Mir is looking to rebound from a disappointing UFC 191 loss to Andrei Arlovski via decision in a lackluster outing at September’s UFC 191 event. Prior to the defeat, Mir had earned back-to-back “Performance of the Night” victories over Todd Duffee and “Bigfoot” Silva.
