Mark Hunt: Martial arts saved my life

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Mark Hunt, who fights Stefan Struve in the co-main event of UFC on FUEL TV 8 this weekend, tells FUEL TV that fighting saved his life.

“If I wasn’t a fighter, I’d probably be in jail,” said Mark Hunt. “Like I said before, fighting saved my life. As a kid I was always doing stupid things, but, combat sports, martial arts saved me. When everyone else didn’t believe in me, it was just me that believed in myself.

“Fighting, it saved me from that chip on my shoulder, it took that chip away. I didn’t have to prove anything. Martial arts gave that to me. That’s the blessing it gave to me.”
