Following today's UFC 158 pre-event presser in Montreal, UFC President Dana White told a group of reporters that should Mark Hunt (9-7 MMA, 4-1 UFC) score a knockout win over former champ Junior dos Santos (15-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC) at May's UFC 160 event, "The Super Samoan" would likely earn himself a UFC title shot.

"It's crazy to say, … but if he knocks Junior dos Santos out, how is this guy not next in line?" White asked.

Hunt is set to face dos Santos at UFC 160, which takes place May 25 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. In the main event, heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez defends his title against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva.

So you only get chance at a title shot if you win by KO?

Nothing would make me happier in MMA than seeing Hunt KO JDS and Cain back to back to win the title.

I like JDS but it would be rocky like if Hunt ended up as champion!

I feel like this quote is taken out of context. He was probably asked what he would do if Hunt KO'd JDS. Or just what would happen if Hunt won and Dana just suggested it being by KO. But obviously if Hunt wins he's going to get a title shot, because he can only win in a striking battle which will be entertaining.

My feelings are:I'm a huge jds fan, and mark hunt fan. So if hunt is gonna beat jds he better get that strap too, otherwise I would rather jds won because I know he will beat Cain given the shot. Phone Post

If anybody beats JDS in the heavyweight division they should be guaranteed a title shot.

Lets look at the top heavyweights he's beaten.

Cain, Carwin, Mir, Nelson, Werdum, Struve, Gonzaga 5 being by knockout.

That's basically a 7 guys who are inside or around the top 10.

I love how Dana puts qualifiers in there to allow himself an escape.  So if Hunt wins by decision, he can say, "I wasn't that impressed.  No title shot."

There are more HWs out there then hunt, what If DC knocks out Frank Mir And Hunt wins a lack luster Decision? And big foot beats Cain? You just goin skip over Cormier for Hunt , cause the UG loves him ?

And he never said, no title shot if no KO, you type out scenarios that you made up in your head, like they came straight from DFW's mouth, you should work for fox news.

JDS will finish Hunt or decision him at the very least. Hunt will gas (as usual) before the 2nd round starts

This is an insanely tough fight for Hunt.

This is how people are thought.

JDS has one loss against a super-motivated and dangerous Cain V., and people forget what a killer Junior is.

Yes, Mark's story is a great one, and he can hit with the best of them, but JDS is a new-breed of fighter that imo hits as hard or even harder than Mark.

But, yes, I agree, if Hunt someone beat Junior, it would be a Serra-level victory.

Yeah, I still doubt it. It's not like Dana has never lied about someone getting a title shot before.....
