Hunt & Schaub unofficially agree to fight

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Sometimes fighters like to make Joe Silva's job easy and agree to fights in the media or even on Twitter. Tonight a big heavyweight fight between Mark Hunt and Brendan Schaub was agreed to, so we'll see if the UFC makes it happen:

Schaub’s manager, Lex McMahon of Alchemist Management, told UFC Tonight that his client wants a big fight in his next outing and would like to face Hunt in a main event or co-main event bout.  Schaub (10-3) last fought at UFC 165 on Sept. 21, 2013 where he defeated Matt Mitrione by first round submission.

Hunt, who is ranked eighth in the heavyweight division, said that he feels a fight with Schaub would be a step backwards but wasn’t opposed to the match-up.

“If he wants to go to sleep first, sure, why not,” Hunt told UFC Tonight.
