Mark Hunt likes nothing more than to give fans a fun, exciting fight. Of course, he always hopes it ends with himself standing over his opponent.
Hunt will take on Stipe Miocic tonight at UFC Fight Night 65 from Australia.
Coming off a knockout loss to Fabricio Werdum for the interim UFC heavyweight title, Hunt (10-9-1) has plenty at stake. The UFC is planning a return to Australia later this year with a pay-per-view event, and rumors have already started that a win over Miocic could vault Hunt into another title shot.
All that, though, is for the future. The more immediate needs nothing more than two fighters going toe-to-toe inside the Octagon.
“We’re going to entertain the fans is what we always do, and that’s put on a great show for the fans so they get their money’s worth,” Hunt said, in an interview with Submission Radio. “We ain’t running nowhere. Well, I ain’t.”
“He’s going to come to fight and so am I. I’ve always come to fight and regardless of the circumstances, I always wanna win it and I’m knocking his lips off.”
Despite reaching 40-plus years now, Hunt is unsure when he’ll step inside the cage and compete for a last time. He mentioned having four bouts still on his contract.
“Every fight for me is like the last fight,” he said. “I feel I’m getting better. Of course, I feel like I’m the best fighter in the world.
“So long as I’m doing all of the fights and I’m beating some of the best guys in the world, I don’t really see myself losing.”
