UFC 180: Werdum vs. Hunt Official Results

UFC 180: Werdum vs. Hunt airs tonight, November 15th, 2014 from Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico. The event will be the first that the organization has hosted in Mexico and was so popular that all 21,000 tickets were sold out in 8 hours.

The event was headlined by a UFC Heavyweight Championship bout between the current champion Cain Velasquez and top contender Fabrício Werdum. However, on October 21st, it was announced that Velasquez was forced to pull out of the bout due to an injured knee and was replaced by Mark Hunt.
