Mark Hunt??

Does anyone know how long Mark Hunt is signed for with PRIDE?? I would love to see Hunt in the UFC and if his contract is close to running out, I think the UFC should give him a serious look. The only problem with him is his weight........I'm not sure how much he weighs exactly, but he would have to at least make the 265 lbs. limit.

I wasn't aware that there was a heavy weight "limit". Is there? Anywho, yeah I would love to see hunt in the HW division to, he's one bad mofo, and the HW in UFC lacks depth.

Mark Hunt may have problems making the 265 lbs. HW weight limit. He could do it, but I see struggles.

i think he is only 250 lbs. so making weight should be no problem at all. Hunt in UFC would be awesome, I think his style fits perfectly with the UFC. only problem i see for him is getting used to the cage since i don't think he has ever fought in one. don't forsee any problems at all for hunt(other than crocop perhaps, but even cropcop couldn't knock him out)

Hunt would be a great addition, the HW division needs the most work by far in the UFC, just lookin at the top 10 HW list on mma says it all.

I wouldnt mind seeing Hunt in the UFC but I think it would be a bad move for the UFC business wise. They just spent a ton of money on Cro Cop and Hunt is a terrible match up for Cro Cop. I see Hunt beating Mirko almost everytime they fight. But then Hunt might go and lose to someone who CC wouldnt lose to like Arlovski.

but if cro cop gets the title and the ufc doesnt get hunt...will there ever be an interesting title contention? i think the key for the ufc is to get every quality fighter that they can and not worry about match ups. let the fighters fight. the ufc management should solely be concerned with getting great fighters.

but i do agree that hunt poses lots of problems for mirko. i wouldnt mind seeing him the octagon.
