UFC Fight Night “Werdum vs. Tybura” Preview. Canada’s Elias Theodorou returns to action!



UFC Fight Night: Werdum vs. Tybura (also known as UFC Fight Night 121) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event held on November 19, 2017 at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia.

The event will mark the promotion’s fifth visit to Sydney, and first since UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs. Bisping in November 2014.

A heavyweight bout between the 2001 K-1 World Grand Prix winner and former interim title contender Mark Hunt against Marcin Tybura was expected to serve as the event’s headliner. However on October 10, Hunt was removed from the bout due to “medical concerns”. He had recently admitted in an article trouble sleeping and said he’s begin to stutter and slur his words. The UFC released a statement claiming that “the health-related statements made by Hunt represented the first time UFC was made aware of these claims”. They also announced that it would be required that Hunt undergo further testing and evaluations prior to competing in any future bout. As a result, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabrício Werdum was chosen as his replacement.

Canada’s Elias Theodorou is looking to bounce back into the win column when he battles Australia’s Dan Kelly in a Middleweight bout. You can see the odds on favourite by clicking here.
