Mark Hunt debuted in the UFC, after losing five in a row in PRIDE and K-1, due to a contractual obligation inucurred when the world's premier MMA organization bought its number one rival - PRIDE FC. Then he lost his debut, to Sean McCorkle, who has since been released.

However, Hunt is now on a two-fight streak, over Chris Tuchscherer (spectacular) and Ben Rothwell (not spectacular) and now faces gatekeeper Cheick Kongo this Saturday at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on the seven-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view.

In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Hunt covered a range of topics, starting with how he got there:

"I feel I'm one of the best fighters on the planet," Hunt said. "Why do I have to explain myself for being a part of the UFC? Every time, people say, 'You just got your deal because of the contract.' I got my deal because I'm talented. C'mon.

"I've been fighting for a long time. I deserve a little bit of respect. But it is what it is, and that's the way it is, and I just say no comment now, so when it gets brought up, I don't have to talk about it, blah-blah-blah. At the end of the day, what are they going to say, anyway?

"So, no comment."

Hunt does however offer comment about his absence from the fight poster.

"I still don't know why I'm not on the poster," he said.

"I'm not complaining or nothing – it's just, wait a minute, I'm third from the end and I don't get my little black monkey face on the poster? Just a little picture. Just on the corner or something."

So what does Hunt want?

"Of course, the long-term goal is to fight for the belt," Hunt said. "But it goes as always for me that I want big money. We've all got to eat. There's no questions on why I do it. I love fighting and everything, but we've all got to have a job. I'll fight as long as people employ me to do it."

I'm desperate for Hunt to win this one. My opinion of Kongo sways between "meh" and "strong dislike for his character", whereas I can't think of a bad thing to say about Hunt. Phone Post

HumbleFighter20 - wait... hunt is black?

 No but Kongo is. He basically said "his black monkey face is on the poster so why isn't mine?" just in a slightly less direct way.


Do you know how to read? How the fuck do you come up with that? And Kongo's not even on the poster.



this. havent seen a single poster with kongo on it. clearly someone is a drama queen.

Dude, you're on a roll lately. I've seen some really stupid posts from you..............oh, and you have the most obnoxious name on the UG. Congratulations, that is not an easy feat.

i like hunt but he has come out overconfident and sounds, at times, a little entitled for a guy who was getting beat by 185 pounders in Japan.
"one of the best in the world"
"kongo isnt a bad fighter or anything but....."
"I want my face on the poster"

I can kind of see how he went not training for all those years.
he is showing himself to have a bit of a narrow view of the world.

Would be pretty sweet if Hunt won by devastating KO. Nobody really expects it and though Congo style is somewhat appealing i just do not thing he is very good hence his fans need a small reality check.

As for the ''comment'' people are blowing this completely out of proportion. I know racism comes in all kind of forms but i would be pretty amazed if Hunt meant it in a racist manner.

And i do believe he deserved his name on the card. Especially i Congo got to be there as well.
