While the first 'Rally for Mark Hunt' failed, the second edition proved to be a resounding success. 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. Though the journey wasn't as straightforward as the result.

Despite the "Super Samoan" immediately campaigning for the vacant shot at dos Santos, UFC President Dana White announced on Twitter that Hunt had turned the fight down. It wasn't until days later, after White posted an ominous tweet that described a positive phone conversation he had with Hunt, that the fight was officially booked...

Hunt is a better technicalnstriker than JDS, Hunt has more power, and Hunt has a fantastic chin. JDS should consider taking Hunt down in this one.

I think JDS picks Hunt apart like he did Carwin, he'll mix up a takedown here and there after Hunt fades, don't let Cain fool ya', JDS isn't week kneed or lacking stamina.

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!
