When Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt square off, fist will likely fly. Flyweight Ian McCall, who is a fan of Hunt’s style, gave the nod to Santos but warned that one shot could end the fight.
“I’d go with JDS,” said McCall on the Rick J Lee Channel. “If he wants to strike with Mark Hunt, that’s a really bad idea. You could hit him in the face with a sledgehammer and he would just punch you back super hard. Mark Hunt hits you hard enough to break your face.”
McCall gave the edge to Santos because of speed, power and reach.
Hunt is familiar with breaking faces. He did just that to Stefan Struve, when he broke his jaw earlier in the year to land close to title contention.
Santos lost his heavyweight championship in December to Cain Velasquez.
They are the co-main event of UFC 160 on May 25. It’s from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
