Much to the delight of his "Army of Doom," Hunt replaced an injured Alistair Overeem against former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos as the co-main event of UFC 160.

Mark Hunt has really made me a fan of him recently. He's an awesome dude and a talented fighter. Can't wait to see him mix it up with Dos Santos!
