Pride veteran, and streaking UFC heavyweight, Mark Hunt is a few weeks out from fighting the most dangerous opponent he has ever face. Hunt is scheduled to face former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos in the co main event at UFC 160: Velasquez Vs Silva II. When the UFC purchased Pride they had planned on buying out Hunt’s contract but Hunt pleaded with them to give him a fight instead. Hunt lost his UFC debut, but has since gone 4-0 in the Octagon and finishing three of his opponents by knockout.
UFC 160: Velasquez Vs Bigfoot II takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 25. The card will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between current Champion Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva. The two fought as potential contenders at UFC 146, but it was Velasquez who won the fight via technical knockout in the second round.
