Hunt wants rematch with Overeem


Appearing on the most recent edition of "The MMA Hour," Hunt revealed he would like to get his rematch against current top contender, Alistair Overeem:

"If they'd like to get me a fight I'd like to get a rematch with Alistair Overeem, you know, when he comes back from his injury or from whatever, his hiatus. You know? I'd like to have my rematch with him. I'd be willing to fight next year so it doesn't matter. If he gets a title shot, that's good on him, so."

The two initially faced off in 2008 at DREAM 5 with "The Reem" defeating "The Super Samoan" via submission in the very first-round.

I think Cormier is more deserving of the match than Hunt.

Awesome. Can't wait to see Hunt get destroyed and then sink into oblivion, lamenting the would-be glory the fight was supposed to bring.

Overeem is a stone cold mortal lock in this fight. Submission whenever and however he wants.

He's an islander, I'm thinking if he's not training he probably looks like two meatballs mashed together. like Roy Nelsons sister with a tan...Give him a few weeks tho

Hunt lost fast against Overeem so no chance against Ubereem...

Huge fan of both.. I hope Hunt's recent success is here to stay, but I think Overeem has too many dimensions to his mma game. Just want to see both stay active for a long stretch without layoffs.
