Mark Hunt denies turning down fight with Junior Dos Santos

On Wednesday news broke that UFC Heavyweight Alistair Overeem was forced to pull out of his UFC 160 fight with former champion Junior Dos Santos. The Reem tore his quadricep in training, an injury that should take him 4-5 weeks to rehabilitate.

Immediately after the announcement of the bout's cancellation, the internet took arms in another "Rally For Mark Hunt", pleading with UFC Dana White to replace Alistair with the heavy-handed Samoan. After being reached by Ariel Helwani on whether or not he'd be willing to fight Dos Santos, Hunt said "I was born down. You know this." So, it came as a big surprise to fans on Thursday, when White claimed that Hunt had turned down the fight.

Mark spoke out against Dana's statement on Twitter:

@markhunt1974

I have never turned down a fight and even wen I was injured I had to force myself not to fight your general fears no man but the almighty.

The denial seemed to have caught Dana's eye as he updated on his own Twitter just a couple hours later:

@danawhite

Mark Hunt and I just got off the phone and had a GREAT conversation!!

Obviously, there's a lot of ambiguity in what a "GREAT conversation" means. For those keeping their fingers crossed for a JDS vs. Hunt match, I wouldn't hold my breath. However, it seems possible that Hunt could get a different high profile fight on the UFC 160 card in May.
Compulsive lying bald boso fck. How dare Dana accuse The Super Samoan of turning down a fight. Are people ever going to realise that Dana White is and always has been FULL OF SHIT.

Yes, it was mentioned in the other threads, but now there is an official article about it and I feel that it deserves it's own thread.

I won't argue with that. Carry on. WAR HUNT! But I must note that JDS is my #1 and Hunt is my #2. I don't think there is any fear between either of them.

He probably realized that Travis Browne looked ten times better beating Struve and is gonna give Hunt someone like that. Not the guy who knocked out the current champ in 64 seconds.

Your hate for Hunt and all things Pride is just beyond silly.

Matt Serra must be one of the greatest fighters ever going by your logic.

I hate Anderson Silva and Ben Henderson.

I'm not impressed by Mark Hunt. There's a difference.
