I wonder who is gonna sign Mark Hunt?

...Former K-1 heavyweight grand champion and Pride fighter,
Mark Hunt is still a major force to be reckoned with in the Heavyweight Division. He's been under the radar staying in Japan. On Pride Shockwave 2006...Mark Hunt gave Fedor a tough fight, actually controlling Fedor on the ground most of the fight. Nobody has been able to do that so far. Then Fedor wins via Kimura. Mark Hunt has one of if not the best chin in all of MMA and is an excellent striker. I hope he signs with an MMA organization here in America. Seeing Hunt become a title contender in MMA would be awesome!

He just fought for Dream last month and got subbed by A. Overeem. I'm not sure if he signed for more than one fight with them though. Also has he ever made 265? If not its questionable he could ever compete in america since I don't know of a large MMA org in america that has SHW fights.

The guy has never fought in the UFC and there is no indication he will though so I'm not sure this is the right forum for this topic.

His loss to Overeem was a big disappointment imo. I'm not such an Overeem fan, he seems to have a knack of losing when he's winning, so it was sad to see Hunt get subbed so quick.

I really wish Hunt would get signed by the UFC. He could potentially give Nog trouble and could give Brock Lesnar the war of his life. He could be in the UFC too because he could just cut an extra 10 or so pounds to meet the required weight. He has a chin that is comparable to Rocky Balboa.

Hunt is one tough tough guy.

I'm down to see that, unfortunately i dont see it happening while he could bring some interesting match ups to the HW division i don't see the UFC signing him but we can hope

Chances make Champion's....Champion's take chances

No thanks. Seeing a giant man laying on top of another giant man for 15 minutes doesn't sound like fun to me.

Seriously? You think they'd lay on top of eachother? I think it would be a good fight.

Oh no, not at all. Lesnar would be the one in the dominant position, Hunt's TD's arn't that good

Hasn't Hunt said he can't make 265? I don't think we will be seeing him in the UFC.
