Hunt wants Overeem rematch for next fight


Mark Hunt fought Alistair Overeem for the first time at Dream 5 and lost by first round submission. Coming off one of the most exciting heavyweight fights ever versus Antonio Silva, Hunt is hoping for a rematch with Overeem inside the UFC octagon:

"Rematches are always good. I’ve never lost a rematch with any fighter. I always like to avenge my losses, too. I saw Alistair in Japan (and) we were talking, he’s a nice guy but as a fighter, he’s got it over me, I’ve got to get it over this guy. It’s a match I’d like to have... the outcome won’t be the same."

This fight is perfect for both guys overeem"s knees, striking n suspect chin against hunt's heart, chin n one punch power. War hunt!!

So with JDS and Miocic out of the picture, are we getting closer to Overeem vs. Hunt II?  I hope so.  UFC will probably do something stupid like Overeem vs. Bigfoot II instead. :-(

Reem would accept this fight and sub Hunt again. He did it last time on ten days notice or something like that. Granted Hunt has improved a lot since then but if the Reem has a full camp I'd still back him to get the win. But he won't stand with Hunt

I'd watch it!! overeem would be cocky I rekon which would make it better to watch especially the part where he gets KOed by hunts left!Hunt is a gladiator and reem has been disappointing since entering the ufc... I'm sure this fight will happen the ufc will use hunt as well as they can this year tho, with the big names gone hunt would be up in the top fighters regarding ppv buys IMO, everyone loves his heart! so that unfortunately means we may not be seeing him fight for free this year!!!
