This past weekend in Brisbane, Mark Hunt picked up yet another spectacular walk-off KO as he knocked out Frank Mir in the first round of their main event scrap.

Following the win, Hunt is looking for a quick turnaround as he looks to build on his 2-fight win streak. While most fighters are methodical in their approach to calling out opponents, Hunt is looking for any top 5 heavyweight.

He spoke on The MMA Hour to further discuss his future plans:

“Any of them is fine,” Hunt said. “Any of the top-five guys would be fine.”

“If someone pulls out, I’d rather fight sooner,” Hunt said. “So if someone pulls out, I’m your man. Give me a call.”

With back to back knockout wins over Bigfoot Silva and Frank Mir, and his only losses in recent memory coming at the hands of heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, title challenger Stipe Miocic, and former champ Junior Dos Santos, who would you like to see Hunt fight next?
