The legend of Mark Hunt’s fearsome power only grew bigger tonight, as the heavyweight scored another, walk off, KO win at UFC Fight Night 85.
Hunt defended a couple of takedown attempts from Frank Mir early on into the fight, and then ended the bout with a huge, overhand right. Mir wasn’t knocked out cold by the punch, but the former champ didn’t protest the stoppage either.
The co-headliner saw Neil Magny earn a thrilling, come from behind win over Hector Lombard. The latter blasted Magny with heavy punches early on, and the fight looked like it was going to be over in round one.
Magny managed to get out of the round, however, and then proceeded to batter Lombard with ground-and-pound strikes in round two. So much so, the fight easily could have been stopped.
Shortly into round three, Magny took Lombard down again, but this time around, the referee jumped into save the latter.
