Originally written April 14, 2012 on 5thRound.com:
It appears the #RallyForMarkHunt movement can’t hold a candle to the social media skills of Caine’s Arcade. Unlike the nine-year-old wonder who created an arcade out of cardboard and tripled his $50,000 goal of earning donations towards his collage education, fans’ efforts to score Mark Hunt (Pictured) a title shot against UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos won’t be nearly as successful. While UFC president Dana White is fully aware the NSAC could still grant Alistair Overeem his fight license to challenge dos Santos, despite the fact he registered more than twice the legal limit for testosterone in a random drug test, he isn’t holding his breath the May 26th scrap will still come to fruition. Regardless, don’t expect for Hunt to receive the promotion should Overeem be pulled from the show’s featured attraction. “[Fans] can keep rallying. It ain’t going to happen,” White flatly stated during Saturday’s “UFC on FUEL TV 2″ post-fight press conference. If Hunt can get past Stefan Struve at UFC 146, White said he’ll then be assigned a Top 5 foe. A victory after that and maybe the organization will think about granting him a title shot. Overeem is scheduled to stand before the NSAC on April 24th. The UFC will not announce who dos Santos’ opponent will be until after the hearing. UFC 146 takes place May 26th inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
