UFC announcer Joe Rogan has expressed a measure of support for fan efforts to get UFC Heavyweight Mark Hunt a title shot against Junior dos Santos should Alistair Overeem be unable to get licensed for the May 26th bout. Rogan posted on the UG:

There are some wise people on this board, and I support this movement.

Style wise that might be the most exciting match up. Either way, even if Hunt doesn't replace the reem I would still love to see this matchup down the road, especially considering how good Hunt looked against Kongo.

Has anyone started a twitter bomb campaign for this?

I don't think Hunt should be given a title shot over Mir. Don't get me wrong, I like Hunt and I'd be excited if he did, but IMO Mir's current streak is more impressive and he's higher in the rankings.

But like I said, if Hunt was given the title shot, I'd be excited without a doubt.

I know what Mark Hunt is capable of, and I know in any fight it just takes one well timed decision to completely change the aspect of the fight, but I seriously do not see Hunt beating JDS at all.

He could make it competitive but I don't think it would last all 5, I would take JDS tko rd 3.

Obvious I would want the jds vs hunt match
At least I would know it would end in a Ko

Joe Rogan supports weak commentary as well.

Hunt would be good but HE DOESN'T DESERVE IT! Overeem better not get the fight since Dana and crew are attempting to get him a license still. I would like to see Hendo fight JDS since Mir isn't getting the shot.

Rogan's commentating isn't weak. He's just a big fan who let's that get in the way sometimes. Him and Bas would be a great combo
