If being the bigger man is important once the Octagon door closes, Mark Hunt will have that going for him Saturday.
Hunt weighed in at 265 pounds for his UFC Fight Night 136 main event bout with Aleksei Oleinik in Moscow, Russia, giving him a 30-pound advantage right now.
That doesn’t include how the two fighters might change over the next 24 hours before they step foot inside the Octagon. Hunt previously had some issues with making the heavyweight limit, so it is very likely that he will be even bigger come fight-time.
The event marks the first time the UFC has set up shop in Russia. The card begins early Saturday morning on UFC Fight Pass.
A couple of prelim fighters missed weight, as Mairbek Taisumov came in five pounds over the lightweight limit for a non-title fight at 161 pounds. Jin Soo Son was a pound heavy for his match with Rustam Khabilov, but both fights will continue with Taisumov and Son forfeiting a portion of their fight purses.
