Mark Hunt: ‘This isn’t BJJ. Black belt or red belt, you’re going to sleep!’

“I was taking the kids to school when I got the call from Dana White. He said there was an opportunity. I said yes before I thought about it – not thinking about tackling the weight, the different time zones, Mexico City being at altitude. I wouldn’t have been happy with myself if I didn’t take the fight.”


Hunt on if this is the biggest fight of his career: “I’ve been at it for 24 years of fighting. This is huge. This is for all the marbles.”


Hunt on how he’ll beat Werdum: “I’m a striker, that’s my background. I can put him out. He’s the submission artist, but this isn’t BJJ. This is mixed martial arts. I don’t care if you have a black belt or red belt, if I can punch you in the face, you’re going to sleep.”
