UFC Fight Night: Werdum vs. Tybura Card & Bout Order

The UFC makes its return to the sunny shores of Sydney this Saturday (Sunday in Australia) for what is a controversial main event

Local favorite Mark Hunt was set to face Marcin Tybura in the main event but was pulled from the event due to concerns about his health.

Controversy ensued when Fabricio Werdum, the man Hunt had unsuccessfully lobbied to fight, got the nod against Tybura.

With Joanne Calderwood injured, Bec Rawlings will have a new co-main event opponent in the form of promotional debutant (and Australian) Jessy Rose-Clark. Tim Means faces Belal Muhammad in what promises to be one of the more intriguing matchups on the card.
