Mark Hunt 'down' to fight Junior dos Santos at UFC 160
Quote:
By Ariel Helwani on Mar 6 2013,


It is still unclear whether the UFC will ask Junior dos Santos to fight a new opponent at UFC 160 now that Alistair Overeem is injured, but one thing is for certain: if Twitter is any kind of guide, the fans' unanimous choice to fight dos Santos in a little over two months is one man:

Mark Hunt.

"If I get the call for the fight, I'm there, of course," Hunt told MMAFighting.com Wednesday night, "and the fans are crazy for it, so it's good."

Hunt, who just knocked out Stefan Struve on Saturday at UFC on FUEL TV 8, didn't know about Overeem's injury, however, when he was asked about whether he would be interested in fighting the former UFC heavyweight champion in a little over two months, he didn't hesitate.

"Sounds like a pretty good idea to me," Hunt said in his typical casual way. "I'm not injured. I'm always down for a battle.

"I was born down. You know this."

Hunt (9-7) has won his last four fights in a row.

I'm all for Hunt stepping up and giving us a great stand up war, but as much as his chin is METAL, JDS's volume is hard to handle.

Plus Junior will NOT feel threatened by TD attempts, so I have a feeling this could be somewhat of a Roy Nelson type beating (Lots of heart but just got plain dominated)...

JDS isn't a volume puncher and Mark Hunt is not Roy Nelson.

If JDS comes in the same shape as he did last night and gets tired very fast he's getting kfto, maybe cain can't KO him when jds has his hands down and getting hit but hunt can KO you even when he has no energy

I am praying for Hunt to get this fight. If he KO's JDS I believe he will get a title shot. Talk about ultimate underdog story. It would be tough to deny him a shot after beating Kongo, Struve and JDS. Plus being on a 5 fight win streak in the HW division. #RallyForMarkHunt
