Hunt Wants Quick Turnaround Following Nelson KO

September 21, 2014 9:40 am by BJPENN.COM News


Following his walk-away KO over Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson yesterday morning at UFC Fight Night 52 in Japan, Mark ‘Super Samoan’ Hunt spoke to media members about who he wants to fight next, and explained his desire to fight on the UFC’s November 8th card in Sydney Australia.

“I want to move forward, and I want to move up in the rankings. I want to get a title shot.”

“My purpose is fighting for a title. Fighting someone outside of the top 10? It makes me go backward.

“But hey, of course I would consider fighting someone outside of the top 10 if it was in Sydney.”

Hunt’s KO over Nelson put him back in the win column after fighting Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva to a draw in December in a Fight Of The Year candidate. Prior to that Hunt had his 4-fight win streak snapped by Junior Dos Santos in May of 2013.
