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."

I think Hunt beating JDS warrants a tittle shot.
Hopefully he will win and i get to see that happen.

Cheering for a Hunto KO, & he should get the title shot with a W. Getting tired of the Dos Santos, Cain, Bigfoot roulette...

Yeah, I'd love to see that as well.  But at the same time, I think I'd like to see Cormier drop to light heavyweight.  Jones has, in my opinion, a serious lack of legitimate challenges, while the heavyweight division has some contenders with real claims to a title fight.  Sure, we could have a perpetual tournament in which Cormier, Hunt, Werdum, Dos Santos, and Overeem all beat each other back down the totem pole, but what you end up with is a terrible MMAth algorithm that turns the entire top ten into a system of gatekeepers, with nobody being perceived as deserving of a title shot.  It becomes the LHW division. And you know what happens next...

I, for one, am not looking forward to that day.
