"I think I'm better than him, I'm more complete fighter than him. I believe so much in myself and I believe in my skills. I can knock anyone out, and I'm going to knock this guy out. He's very tough; he keeps trying until he knocks the guys out so he's really dangerous. I'm going to stop him; it's over for him. Now he's going to lose." – Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Junior dos Santos tells UFC.com he wants to bring an emphatic end to the career resurgence of Mark Hunt with a knockout of "The Super Samoan" at UFC 160 later this month. Dos Santos and Hunt are set to square off in the co-main event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 25, 2013 to determine which man will earn the opportunity to challenge for the UFC heavyweight title down the line. Throughout his career both as a professional kickboxer and mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, Hunt has been known for his absurd ability to take damage without truly being phased. The 39-year-old has only ever been finished once by strikes in MMA competition, and that defeat happened well over five years ago. With that said, "Cigano" is extremely confident in the power behind his strikes and is under the impression Hunt will crumble once he gets hit like many men before him. Will dos Santos be able to connect clean and end Hunt's four-fight win-streak in highlight reel fashion? Or will Hunt be able to take the Brazilian's best shots and continue to move forward? Find out in just over two weeks time.
