It's a fight that fans have been clamoring for, and it will soon become reality, as Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson are expected to meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Japan.

Very nice! Been wanting to see this fight for some time now and it makes perfect sense!
Two of the heaviest hitters with granite chins, this should be good

I can dig that.

Nelson could be smart here and sub Hunt easily.

God I love this fight. It's gonna be a backburner of a fight.

The last time I even remember him going for a takedown was against Kimbo back on TUF.

I hope they throw away caution and give it a good old fashioned slobber knocker for even just 1 minute.

Man if even Roy just waits til the 2nd rd to take it to the ground Hunt has a chance. He just needd to box carefully and tire Roy out and then pounce later. If its a slugfest I got Hunt, but like it was said all Roy needs to do is take him down early.

My head just exploded!!!!!

Nelson will gas after the first round AS ALWAYS and will become a punching bag for the remainder of the fight.

Hopefully Hunt KO's him early so we don't have to see Nelson trudge around for 2-3 rounds.

oh hell yeah!

Awesome that they are doing this in Japan. Buffer better announce him as MARKA HUNTO!

Nelson taking down Hunt is going to be hard, considering his low center of gravity is essentially all of his wrestling.

Hunt v. Nelson: The two hardest hitting, toughest chinned, shortest, & fattest in the HW division.

i have a feeling Roy will try to play it safe here.

I think Hunt will find a way to win this one. I trust his cardio a bit more than Nelson these days, although that'll be irrelevant if somebody gets knocked out early. As great as both these guys chins are, I think the power/age factors might result in an earlier-than-expected KO.
