UFC Fight Night 33: Hunt & Bigfoot bloody each other up to a draw

UFC Fight Night 33 Bigfoot Silva injury blood vs. Hunt

Is Mark Hunt vs. Bigfoot Silva the best heavyweight fight ever?


How rare! An MMA main event bout that went all five rounds with loads of action and ended with a draw! And wow, what a crazy fight it was. The main event of the night kicked off looking as though it's going to be a dull fight as both Hunt and Antonio Silva were very careful, trying to find the range and all. I, too, thought it was going to be boring as they both kinda looked slow and overly defensive. I thought nothing special or fancy was going to happen until Hunt dropped the Bigfoot in round 3 with a straight right down the middle of Silva's face and delivered some heavy ground-pounding. From the fourth round onwards, both seemed low on gas but that's when the insane exchanges begun as neither of them were careful nor defensive anymore.

In the 5th and final round, both got all bloodied up due to elbows but neither gave up, they just kept throwing power strikes each other and mind you, these were heavyweight punches, elbows and knees, and they were pretty accurate. It's just mad that they were both still standing at the end of the bout. What a brawl it was indeed. And what a display of heart and technicality in striking. Both fighters hugged each other immediately out of respect and probably relief after the bout ended and they knew they've put a fantastic show for the audience in Brisbane, Queensbay, Australia. Hunt's blonde hair literally dyed pink by their blood.

UFC Fight Night 33 Hunt draws with Bigfoot

One of the three judges scored the bout 48-47 to Hunt (same score I would've given) while the other two scored it 47-47, resulting to a draw via majority decision. To be honest, it was the first time I've witness such a thing. Although I thought Hunt probably landed more significant shots, I think a draw was certainly a fair one. As for whether if it's the best fight or best heavyweight fight ever, I don't think so but it was certainly one of the most entertaining fights ever in the UFC.

Shogun KO's Te-Huna


Mauricio "Shogun" Rua is back to the winning bracket after landing a counter left hook to James Te-Huna's chin early in the very first round. It was truly strange of Te-Huna for being so careless with big movements. I think he tried to fake a right punch and go for a quick lefty but he left his right side wide open for Shogun to attack. The shot dropped Te-Huna immediately and was completely unconscious before Shogun's unnecessary heavy followup drop punch came.
