The #RallyForMarkHunt campaign may have came to an end at the post fight press conference in Sweden when UFC President Dana White told attendees Hunt would not be getting the next title shot. However the efforts of Hunt’s mob, may have had success to some degree.
Fighters Only Magazine claims to have a source close to the UFC and recently reported that Hunt had not been chosen largely due to his loss to Sean McCorkle which is seen as a major black mark on the Super Samoan’s record.
The Fighters Only source also claimed that the UFC was impressed by the amount of support Hunt had managed to gather.
According to the report, all of the support has not gone unnoticed at UFC HQ and Hunt now could find himself just two good wins away from earning a title shot.
Hunt faces Stefan Struve in his next outing and if victorious over Struve he would face a top 10 Heavyweight and If he wins in style he may even get the loser of Dos Santos vs. Overeem if the bout goes ahead in the first place.Tags: featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news
