And without further ado, here are my one-liners for UFC Fight Night 65 in Australia...
MAIN CARD (UFC FIGHT PASS)
Mark Hunt vs Stipe Miocic
Despite the fact that these heavyweights are coming off a loss, they could be right back in the title picture w/ an impressive win tonight.
Brad Tavares vs Robert Whittaker
This co-main event battle on the feet between two TUF veterans has a good chance of taking home the evening's 'Fight of the Night' honors.
Anthony Perosh vs Sean O'Connell
These light heavyweight finishers look to string a pair of wins together in a fight that is not likely to reach the distance.
James Vick vs Jake Matthews
This is a barn-burner between a couple of undefeated veterans of The Ultimate Fighter and it's the fight on the card I look forward to most.
PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC FIGHT PASS)
Hatsu Hioki vs Daniel Hooker
It's do-or-die time for Japanese veteran Hioki, who is in dire need of a win here, as he could be facing contract termination with a defeat.
Jonavin Webb vs Kyle Noke
The undefeated Webb makes his short notice UFC debut by taking a trip overseas to square up against TUF veteran Noke on enemy soil.
Daniel Kelly vs Sam Alvey
A pair of middleweights who look to extend their Octagon winning streaks to 3-0 in what could be the sleeper for the evening's 'FOTN' bonus.
Bec Rawlings vs Lisa Ellis
There is beef between these women's strawweights and they will look to settle it inside the Octagon.
Brad Scott vs Dylan Andrews
One of six fights on this card that features two TUF veterans squaring off, and both of these middleweights badly need a win tonight.
Alex Chambers vs Kailin Curran
These women's 115-pounders aim to gain their first UFC victory after falling short in their Octagon debuts.
Brendan O'Reilly vs Vik Grujic
Many would consider this as the least looked-forward-to fight of the night.
Alptekin Ozkilic vs Ben Nguyen
These flyweights will go to war in the very first fight of the evening, and they are likely to get things rolling on a high-note.
