MMA: The fight had quick and violent written all over it.

After all, neither Kiwi Mark Hunt nor Brazilian Antonio 'Bigfoot' Silva had been past three rounds in an MMA bout.

But after 25 minutes of brutality in Brisbane on Saturday night, three judges somehow scored the bloodied combatants a draw in their UFC 33 five-rounder ... and no one felt robbed.

Not surprisingly after what was described as the greatest UFC heavyweight clash of all time, talk immediately turned to a rematch.
