Mark Hunt to Fight Junior dos Santos at UFC 160

Better late than never. Props: @ZeusJupiterMMAO

It may have taken a year to come about, but a fight between Mark Hunt and Junior dos Santos has been booked for UFC 160.

When a quadriceps injury to Alistair Overeem left Junior dos Santos without an opponent for UFC 160, Hunt immediately organized a Twitter assault in an effort to get the fight. Despite White’s initial insistence on postponing Overeem vs. dos Santos, a phone call from “The Super Samoan” last night was enough to change his mind. See, sometimes persistence doesn’t result in a restraining order.

Mark Hunt is currently riding a four fight win streak, coming off of a brutal, jaw-breaking knockout over Stefan Struve at last Saturday’s UFC on FUEL 8. Meanwhile, dos Santos is coming off of a gutsy, yet lopsided loss to Cain Velasquez at UFC 155.

Will Hunt continue his unlikely rise through the UFC heavyweight division, or will Junior dos Santos prove to be too much for him? Let us know your early predictions in the comments.

I think jds will win but it could be very close and I've been wrong about hunt in his last two fights, jds has really technical boxing and better cardio than hunt, hunts still a fucking beast though, it could be a lot like the jds-Carwin fight though, not trying to piss off hunt fans, he's a badass for sure and I'm loving the comeback story, just think jds will take it

I do'nt need to look at hunts record, fuck his record, I know what kind of fighter hunt is. To say this is a stupid fight that hunt cant win is retarded. At the very least it has the makings of a stand up war, two good strikers , two good chins sounds fucking awesome, if you dont think so take your helmet off, get off the short bus, take a nap and shut the fuck up. WAR HUNT-O.

No one should count Hunt out in what , in theory, equals out to a K1 style fight for the most part. Not a good idea.

yeah karma ur right bro jds who has knocked out every top heavy wieght in the ufc against hunt who licks balls and has literally beat nobody in the top of the devision.and i sound crazy lol.look at the record brother before u talk like people actually give a shit to this pathetic fight.not gonna buy this shit i promise u that.and as for the 4 fight win streak over mediocre at best talent doesnt compare to his 6 fight losing streak against mid level and 2 top level fighters.

Sweet Jeebus it's really happening! I like JDS a lot, more than most of the guys in his division, but 13 years of watching Mark Hunt fight has me basically freaking out. War Hunt-o! There's no question this will be a good fight- Junior has a good chin and a lot of KO power himself but I think a motivated MArk Hunt can put anyone on their ass, even him. And for those already predicting a replay of JDS vs. Nelson you should think again. Roy has good boxing, but he relies on his chin. Mark has a great chin but he is very accurate and moves surprisingly fast for such a big guy. He was punching right over the top of Struve's jabs (what jabs he actually threw, that is). At the end of the day, the very fact that 2 years ago I would have been considered legally insane/retarded for suggesting this fight could ever take place shows that people should never doubt what War Hunt-o can do when he's motivated.

@OC in addition to what Karma said Hunts 4 fight win streak is currently the longest winning streak in the heavyweight division.
KarmaAteMyCat- March 9, 2013 at 2:37 pm
Dudes on a four fight win streak against the UFC HW Division why doesn't he deserve a shot at Dos Santos? Stfu and quit pretending that the match making has ever made any sense in the UFC OC. it makes you come off crazy, this isn't fucking reality bro this is UFC match making. What the fans wants the fans ONCE IN AWHILE get...
oc in this bitch- March 9, 2013 at 2:28 pm
nice.feed jds and easy comeback win.no chance for hunt.the guy is 9-7 comeon now.he deserves a shot at the #1 contender? wtf is that all about.
Alan K- March 9, 2013 at 1:13 pm
Mark will lose but I will hope for an upset. Either way it should be a good fight.
El Guapo- March 9, 2013 at 12:34 pm
Good for Mark, mang. Dude earned his shot and I hope he turns JDS' lights out. Nothing against Junior, but The Super Samoan is like a comic book hero to me. PRIDE NEVA DIE!!

I thought Nog BJJ black belts were in cracker jacks boxes... you mean those things are real?!?!?
Hunt by sledgehammer to anything.
jcv1986- March 9, 2013 at 9:56 am
Lets go hunt, take him to the deep waters. Will b cheering for hunt all the way, guys a tank . Anything is possible with the right game plan. Pride is alive !!!

JDS by sub. There's no point in boxing with a dude like Hunt. The guy got subbed by Sean McCorkle for Christ's sake. Hopefully JDS is smart enough to flash that Nog bros black belt for once.
algiersheadkick504- March 9, 2013 at 9:14 am
No just no...I will quit if this fight goes to a decision both better bring the heat and if anything jds will shoot for takedowns before hunt
clarkeaw- March 9, 2013 at 9:10 am
JDS by decision. Hunt wont be able to take him down or outstrike him and jds has better cardio. Would love to be wrong though
