In a few hours UFC 180: Werdum vs. Hunt will kick off and MMA fans around the world will rejoice. The event will take place in the Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico. This is the first time that UFC is bringing it to Mexico. The people of Mexico are so excited about the event that tickets were sold out within 8 hours.
Originally the event was planned to headline the UFC Heavyweight Championship match between Cain Velasquez and Fabrício Werdum. Velasque is the current champion and Werdum the top contender. But on October 21 it was announced that Velasquez could not go on with the fight because he has suffered an injury. So Mark Hunt was tapped to replace Velasquez. But Hunt is not Velasquez so the main event was changed from "championship" to interim title bout.
