Mark Hunt has been known for his tremendous strength and power; tonight he exhibited both with a thunderous 3rd round knockout.
Hunt was at a physical disadvantage against the 7’0″ 280 lb Struve but he used his quickness to stay close to Struve’s body and effectively neutralized any reach advantage that Struve may have had entering the fight.
Hunt has openly said that he is...
There have been some interesting theories -- and a few excuses -- why it's taken this long for Brian Stann and Wanderlei Silva to face one another.
The two middlweights who are atop this weekend's UFC on Fuel 8 card in Japan were originally penciled in for UFC 130 in May 2011. The one piece of speculation that Stann never bought was that Silva was scared.
Mark Hunt is one of, if not the hardest puncher in the UFC and when he lands one of his bombs with 4oz gloves, bad things happen. Well, as we saw last night, Hunt landed cleanly multiple times and connected big with a left hook walk off KO.
Struve tweeted the following after the fight:
“45 minutes to the hospital without painkillers.. Man, please choke me out.. Jaw is hurting...
The UFC on FUEL TV 8 fighter weigh-ins have concluded and everyone but Diego Sanchez successfully made weight for the event. The fighter weigh-ins for tomorrow’s UFC on FUEL TV 8 took place tonight at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, the event takes place at the same venue. Main event fighter Wanderlei Silva (34-12-1 MMA, 4-7 UFC) weighed-in [...]
When a guy is 5’10 and fights a guy who is 7’0, their stare down pic is a must see. Struve better use that distance to keep Hunt away from him, as Hunt could touch you and you could go to sleep.

Struve Wants Title Shot

There was no need for a third man in the cage when Hunt took on Stefan "The Skyscraper" Struve during the UFC on Fuel TV 8 co-main event in Saitama. Mark Hunt calls off his own fights, and after landing a left hook of doom that dropped his 7 foot tall opponent, he knew the next step would be heading over to collect his KO of the night...
The UFC returns to Japan this Saturday for another surprisingly stacked Fuel TV card, headlined by PRIDE legend Wanderlei Silva and former Marine Brian Stann. Now normally I pick a match-up that jumps out at me and break down the individual games of each fighter. However, I want to talk about all the bouts on the main card (minus Hirota and Yahya), as they are all exciting. So, instead...
Wanderlei’s jumping ability won’t be the deciding factor in this fight, but rather his ability to deal with Stann’s power. Still pretty impressive for the seasoned fighter.
