UFC Fight Night 142 live results: Junior Dos Santos vs. Tai Tuivasa

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC Fight Night 142: Dos Santos vs. Tuivasa, eminating from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, Australia.

The Octagon heads to Adelaide for the second time with a pair of heavyweight bouts at the top of the card and action throughout.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos looks to make it two straight wins when he takes on undefeated rising prospect Tai Tuivasa in the main event. Dos Santos is coming off a decision win over Blagoy Ivanov in July, while Tuivasa gets the headline spot in just his fourth Octagon appearance, as he goes for his ninth straight win.

Also on the main card is former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua as he takes on Tyson Pedro, and a welterweight bout between Jake Matthews and Tony Martin also highlights the main card.
