Fresh off a devastating knockout victory over Stefan Struve, Mark Hunt is looking for another highly-ranked foe in the UFC.
Hunt earned his fourth straight win inside the Octagon Saturday night at UFC on FUEL TV: Silva vs. Stann, improving his overall MMA record to 9-7. He landed a combo that broke the jaw of Struve and finished the fight.
When asked about a potential title shot, Hunt didn’t back down, telling the post-fight show on FUEL TV “Of course I would like to go for the title. I’ll take (Antonio) ‘Bigfoot’ (Silva) or anyone in the Top-10.”
Silva, of course, is currently locked in a bout with Cain Velasquez for the UFC heavyweight title later this year.
As for his triumph over the favored Struve, “The Super Samoan” was critical of his own performance, saying, “It was a great fight. My timing was off and I could have put things together better, but I was glad to take the win.”
Hunt has now finished three of his last four opponents, grouped around a decision victory vs. Ben Rothwell.
