Roy Nelson vs. Mark Hunt Could Be the Greatest Heavyweight Fight Ever

Mark Hunt

Mark Hunt’s resurgence in the UFC has been quite possibly one of the most inspiring things I have ever seen. The man has completely re-invented himself, not only mentally but physically. Hunt got his butt back into the gym and started taking training seriously, working on technique as well as conditioning so if that knockout punch never came, he could still win the fight by out-toughing his opponent. It has paid off ten-fold. He first started knocking people out, and by people I mean heavyweights who are just outside the top-ten in the UFC. He then went on to fight a former champion and a former title-challenger. Though he lost both of those fights, both of them are now considered some of the greatest fights in the history of the Heavyweight division.

Now, Hunt finds himself looking for a win, and who does he want? The most American man of all time, Roy Nelson.

Nelson is one of the last gunslingers in the UFC. He is a man who has always said that he is much more than a guy with a lot of power, but so far the fans, and the UFC for that matter, have not seen any of that. Nelson makes his living by knocking guys senseless. So what exactly happens if Hunt meets Nelson?

The fans could be in for either an amazing fight or an amazing finish. I doubt that this one will go to the scorecards, but with Hunt you never know. Come to think of it, this fight will go to the scorecards; both of these dudes refuse to go down, and they both have a chin made out of alien metals. They will throw bombs and neither of them will go down. Ladies and gentleman, I do believe that we are in for a war.
