Mark Hunt vs Junior dos Santos Fight Set To Co-Main UFC 160

hunt vs jds

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


Mark Hunt will now face dos Santos on May 25 in Las Vegas. White confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com Saturday morning.

“When contacted by MMAFighting.com, an ecstatic Hunt called the opportunity “my title shot.” Hunt, who denied ever directly turning down the opportunity, was pleased with the outcome of the call, as was White. They would not discuss exactly what they spoke about.”

Hunt (9-7) enters the bout on a four-fight winning streak with a knockout of Stefan Struve last Saturday night, while dos Santos (15-2) is coming off a heavyweight title beating from the hands of Cain Velasquez in December.

UFC 160, headlined by Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva 2, will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Hunt vs. dos Santos will serve as the co-main event.
