Mark Hunt: Heavyweight Division Is Full Of “Big Boys”

Always the honest man, Mark Hunt talked about his recent fights, competing in New Zealand and Derrick Lewis during a recent appearance on “UFC Tonight.”

Hunt meets Lewis in the main event of UFC Fight Night 110 Saturday night.

Hunt on if he feels pressure fighting at home: “No pressure. I’m just looking forward to working in a couple of days. I respect Derrick. He’s hopefully clean. That’s the main thing. That’s all I ask for.”

Hunt on if there’s anything he’s concerned about fighting Lewis: “Not really. This is the best in the world. This is the heavyweight division. These are the big boys and they throw a lot of heat. Nothing I’ve never seen before. I’ve fought the best in the world.”

Hunt on if people ask him about retiring: “They always ask. I’ve still got an opportunity here with the UFC. I’ve got three fights left. I’ll quit when I’m ready. I’ll quit on my terms, when this body and this mind has had enough.”

Hunt on Lewis having momentum: “Yes he has. This is my hood. This is my area of the world. I’m going to knock his face off. I didn’t get up the last couple of times, because those guys are cheating pricks. If he’s clean, we’re going to get it on.”
