Mark Hunt is set to return to the Octagon on May 10th, as the feared slugger will take on fellow heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic. If you’re not excited about that fight, well, that’s just silly, silly, silly.
The bout will mark the first time Hunt has fought since November, when he faced Fabricio Werdum for the interim UFC heavyweight belt. Hunt was tapped as a replacement for the injured champ, Cain Velasquez, due to the jaw dropping run he’s put together in recent years. Aside from a KO loss to former champ Junior dos Santos, Hunt had gone undefeated since 2010, and had scored some thrilling stoppage victories along the way.
One of those came against Stefan Struve in March, 2013, which you can watch below.
UFC FN 65 will go down in Adelaide, Australia.
