Mark Hunt 'down' to fight Junior dos Santos at UFC 160

It is still unclear whether the UFC will ask Junior dos Santos to fight a new opponent at UFC 160 now that Alistair Overeem is injured, but one thing is for certain: if Twitter is any kind of guide, the fans' unanimous choice to fight dos Santos in a little over two months is one man:


"If I get the call for the fight, I'm there, of course," Hunt told MMAFighting.com Wednesday night, "and the fans are crazy for it, so it's good."

Hunt, who just knocked out Stefan Struve on Saturday at UFC on FUEL TV 8, didn't know about Overeem's injury, however, when he was asked about whether he would be interested in fighting the former UFC heavyweight champion in a little over two months, he didn't hesitate.

"Sounds like a pretty good idea to me," Hunt said in his typical casual way. "I'm not injured. I'm always down for a battle.

"I was born down. You know this."

Hunt (9-7) has won his last four fights in a row.
