Mark Hunt is quickly capitalizing on the momentum his knockout win over Stefan Struve has gained him. Dana White has named Hunt the replacement for Alistair Overeem in UFC 160’s Co-Main event against former UFC champion Junior Dos Santos.
Dos Santos is looking to use this fight as a stepping stone towards a rematch with champion Cain Velasquez.
Hunt is trying to establish himself as the most devastating puncher in MMA. His jaw breaking KO of Struve lit up the internet and made Hunt the man to watch right now.
Dana White is always good at using momentum to put together interesting fight cards and this year’s All-Heavyweight UFC 160 card just got a huge lift by adding Hunt. The winner of this fight would be in line to face the victor of the other main event fight between the champion Velasquez and Big Foot Silva.
UFC is taking place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on May 25th. The card will feature 3 fights on Facebook, 3 Fights on FX, and 3 on Pay-Per-View.
