Ariel Helwani, who has more inside information than Varys, said on UFC Tonight that the UFC is targeting Mark Hunt vs. Roy Nelson for a September show in Japan.
"I'm told the UFC wants to do Roy Nelson vs. Mark Hunt," said Helwani. "The fans would love this. We'll have to wait to see how Roy's hand heals after surgery. If all goes well, maybe they'll fight on the show September 20 in Japan."
Both fighters are extraordinarily durable, and both hit ferociously hard. In fact, both fighters hit their opponent so hard in their last fight that they ended up with a broken hand.
