Mark Hunt Wants To Rematch Alistair Overeem

The last time that Mark Hunt took on Alistair Overeem, Alistair was able to best the “Super Samoan” via first round key lock submission back during their days with the “Dream” fighting organization. Now, as Hunt is coming off an immediate classic in his bout against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, it appears that Hunt is looking to set up a rematch against Overeem in hopes to avenge the loss.

Hunt took some time with his own New Zealand’s MMA Kanvas to discuss his desire for a rematch with Overeem among many other things including his appearance and style in the new UFC video game, “Bigfoot”‘s failed drug screening, and using TRT himself.

When asked about a possible rematch with Overeem Hunt showed no hesitation in saying “of course” to a rematch.

“Rematches are always good. I’ve never lost a rematch with any fighter. I always like to avenge my losses, too. I saw Alistair in Japan (and) we were talking, He’s a nice guy but as a fighter, he’s got it over me, I’ve got to get it over this guy. It’s a match I’d like to have.”

He was then asked what he predicted the outcome of that bout would be. Hunt was immediate in his response by saying that “the outcome won’t be the same.”

This would no doubt be a fantastic matchup and a crowd pleaser for sure.

So, let’s hear it Penn Nation. If the rematch were to happen who do you think would come out victorious? Would the “Super Samoan” have what it takes to take down “The Demolition Man”? Or would he fall victim to another loss by the hands of Overeem? Give us your thoughts!

    The Demolition man would eat him alive atm…when he beat Hunt the first time he was half in size than what he is now, let alone a worse striker and grappler.

      Allistair could definitely beat Hunt. But I just can see Hunt not cracking his weak ass chin. Hunts ground game has also gotten sooo much better since their first fight.

      • 雑草 says:

        I don’t want to sound mean towards Hunt, but all he has is a punchers chance…
        Hunts best bet to win would be to turn this into a brawl, any other way and he would be outclassed

          did you watch the first fight? alistair was so fucking scared to trade with hunt. And their wrestling is even now, overeem was taken down by that bullshit takedown from mir so.. if this fight happens, i bet on hunt, he is dangerous until the final second and overeem chin sucks

        • 雑草 says:

          Yeah i watched the first fight, and i’ve watched multiple fights from both fighters since then.

          You can’t possibly believe that Hunt has progressed more as a fighter than Overeem has since their first match…just look at what each of them has achieved since then. I’m sure they both have a wikipedia page.

          Long story short…The Dutchman might have a suspect chin but Hunt is a worse (technique wise) striker, a worse wrestler and a worse bjj practitioner. A thick skull and a lions heart can only take Hunt so far (just like it did Fujita in his MMA career).

        WOULD ANYBODY FIGHT MARK HUNT LOOL ?? ?
        SEE IF CAIN VALESQUEZ COULD BEAT THIS AMAZING BEAST FROM N.ZEALAND

    • GRT 3000 says:

      Let’s not forget the Reem was roided up during their first fight.

    Hunt better crack that suspect chin.

    The Reem couldn’t handle Bigfoot’s power, and Hunt handled him while he was juiced. Without any juice for Reem in second fight, Hunt would connect and the fight would be over.
