White: No immediate Hunt vs. Bigfoot rematch


Mark Hunt and Bigfoot are opposing unstoppable forces and immovable objects. The fight ended as the greatest draw in combat sports history, and that was just - no one deserved to lose that fight.

It was a fight for ages, but the rematch won't be immediate accoring to UFC president Dana White.

"Every morning when I open my eyes, the first thing I think about is Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva," said White. "THE sickest heavyweight fight that I have ever seen. I was jumping around the room like a little kid during that fight. I can't stop talking about that fight, I can't stop thinking about that fight. It was amazing! In that fight, Hunt broke his hand in two places, so he's gonna be out for awhile. No, there won't be an immediate rematch. I'm assuming Silva is gonna want to fight again before Hunt is back."

These guys put on an amazing heavyweight fight, left it all out there and came to a draw. They're friends and didn't even want to fight each other. Why not just leave it. Usually an immediate rematch involves at least 1 of the 2 fighters unhappy and wanting a rematch, why make 2 friends fight again, especially after the damage they took.

I think Schaub vs Big Foot would be fun.

Sometimes rematches work out. Chandler vs Alvarez 2 was pretty damn good. But it's rare. I am happy to leave this one well enough alone.

The first fight was all we could ask for. The next fight should only happen if there is a title shot on the line, otherwise it's kind of irrelevant in terms of the division overall

No need for a rematch at all. Maybe Bigfoot could welcome Struve back to the cage?
