All's well that ends well for Mark Hunt.

A day after UFC president Dana White said Hunt turned down a fight against Junior dos Santos at UFC 160, "The Super Samoan" got the fight he wanted following a phone conversation with White Thursday night.

JDS will destroy Hunt. In my honest opinion Hunt is no where near ready to face someone like JDS.

On a side note I'm stoked that he filled in just for the sake of not scratching a fight from the card completely

You never know what will happen with the kind of power Hunt has, but I'm expecting something along the lines of JDS/ Nelson. Hunt's chin will keep him in there.

Fun fight.

my thoughts exactly. Hunt has a head like a brick and hands of stone. JDS huts like a mack truck. Guess its the old saying.....what wins, the unstoppable force or the immovable object

The one thing about Hunt that sets him apart from the old school fighters is that he is improving, whether its enough to beat JDS is doubtful, but here's hoping in what should be a fun fight

To be fair, the fight will more than likely play out where Hunt is most comfortable....on the feet
