Hunt wants title shot with a win

Friday, May 24, 2013

Earlier this month UFC President Dana Whtie said that should Junior Dos Santo defeat Mark Hunt at UFC 160, he would receive the next shot at the UFC heavyweight title. Mark Hunt was not mentioned by White, however Hunt feels as though he also deserves a title fight with a win this weekend:

“This is the biggest fight for me, but it’s just another fight at the end of the day,” Hunt said. “Of course, this is the moment for me. And of course, we talk about acclimatizing. But I’m not going to use it as an excuse if I lose. I’m not going to use any excuse. I’m not that kind of fighter or person.”

Hunt knows one thing for sure – if he wins on Saturday, there’s no reason he shouldn’t be next in line for the title.

“I feel if I beat JDS this weekend, I should get the shot,” Hunt said. “But whatever happens, happens. … I’m always the underdog for every fight, and I probably always will be.”
