Though not official, UFC Tonight is reporting that promotion officials are looking at a potential heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson.
The fight would likely be contested in Japan, where Mark Hunt has a loyal fan following from his K-1 and PRIDE FC days.
The UFC Tonight panel broke down the news:
“I’m told the UFC wants to do Roy Nelson vs. Mark Hunt. The fans would love this. We’ll have to wait to see how Roy’s hand heals after surgery. If all goes well, maybe they’ll fight on the show September 20 in Japan.”
