Nogueira Favors Hunt Or Mir Over Others For Overeem Replacement


By Jamie McAllister:
“It was a little weird because now it is just around the corner to decide who will be his [Alistair] substitute. If the doping is really confirmed and he can’t fight, the UFC will have to replace him on the card. There are many UFC heavyweight fighters who could replace Overeem well for Cigano make the title defense,”

“Fans suggested Hunt, who comes off three wins and would be a great fight. Frank Mir would be a good match-up. I think both guys would be more interesting than a rematch against Cain Velasquez, who just lost the title.”

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira shares his thoughts with FightersOnly on the state if affairs in the Heavyweight division favouring Hunt or Mir for the title bout over former champion Cain Velasquez.
