HALIFAX – The UFC is back in Canada this week, and a pair of heavyweights are set to throw down in the main event.

Travis Browne (18-5-1 MMA, 9-5-1 UFC) takes on Derrick Lewis (17-4 MMA, 8-2 UFC) in the headliner for UFC Fight Night 105, which takes place Sunday at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The card airs on FS1 after early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Today, the two big men had a tense staredown at the host hotel in Halifax after a media day session.

Also featured in the session was the co-main event between middleweights Johny Hendricks (17-6 MMA, 12-6 UFC) and Hector Lombard (34-6-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC). Hendricks, a former welterweight champion, is fighting at 185 pounds for the first time. Lombard has spent time at welterweight, as well. And at featherweight, Sam Sicilia (15-7 MMA, 5-6 UFC) takes on local newcomer Gavin Tucker (9-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

Check out the video above to see the face-offs.
