All's well that ends well for Mark Hunt.

A day after UFC president Dana White said Hunt turned down a fight against Junior dos Santos at UFC 160, "The Super Samoan" got the fight he wanted following a phone conversation with White Thursday night.

As a result, Hunt will now meet dos Santos on May 25 in Las Vegas.

White confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com Saturday morning.

When contacted by MMAFighting.com, an ecstatic Hunt called the opportunity "my title shot." Hunt, who denied ever directly turning down the opportunity, was pleased with the outcome of the call, as was White. They would not discuss exactly what they spoke about.

An opening presented itself for Hunt after Alistair Overeem pulled out of the fight due to a quadriceps injury. Immediately after the Overeem news broke, Hunt told MMAFighting.com that he was willing and ready to fight dos Santos later this year.

No word just yet who Overeem will now face next or when he will return to action. Sources close to him said he was shooting for a July return to the Octagon.

Hunt (9-7) enters the fight riding a four-fight winning streak following his knockout of Stefan Struve last Saturday night, while dos Santos (15-2) is coming off a heavyweight title loss to Cain Velasquez in December.

UFC 160, headlined by Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva 2, will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Hunt vs. dos Santos will serve as the co-main event.

What? No way, Big Country may have the heart and chin that rivals Mark's, but he doesn't have anywhere near the striking ability that Hunt has. This is a dangerous, dangerous fight for JDS.

Struve doesn't know how to use his reach and Jds does.I just think he's going to pick him off and when Hunt throw's his bombs jds will use his quickness to avoid them imo. Phone Post

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

War JDS! I love Mark Hunt, but I can't root against JDS, he is my favourite HW.

This will be an insanely good fight. We could maybe see a submission win by Dos Santos, I know he wants one... Phone Post

Not a chance, Hunt is 10x the striker Nelson is.

Just because two guys have similar builds doesn't mean they fight the same way. Phone Post

Amazing news.

Is Junior practicing his double leg as we speak. He just mentioned that he'd like to get a submission win soon. Phone Post
