Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva will be looking to recreate their fight of the year candidate from December 2013 when they clash once again at “UFC 193: Rousey vs. Holm”. Their last meeting ended in controversial fashion when it ended in a majority draw and it was later tainted by Silva’s failed drug test.
When PRIDE closed its doors, it was assumed that there was nothing left for Hunt in the octagon. When it was later discovered that he had fights left on his PRIDE contract that Zuffa absorbed, Dana White offered to simply buy out his contract. “Super Samoan” turned down the offer and chose to fight for his money instead! Hunt turned heads in his first couple octagon appearances, but it wasn’t until his fight with Cheick Kongo that he was taken as a serious threat in the heavyweight division.
