After knocking out Mir, Hunt eyes title rematch with Werdum
Mark Hunt’s return to the Octagon more than a year since his last fight didn’t last long with a first-round knockout of two-time heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC Fight Night 85 in Brisbane, Australia.
“I’ve never lost a rematch, so I’d love to do that. I can party anywhere,” added Hunt, who was born in South Auckland, New Zealand before residing in Sydney, Australia.
Preferably, Hunt, the No 9 ranked contender in his division, eyes a title rematch with Werdum.
Hunt was winning over Werdum early in their fight two years ago until he got caught with a flying knee in the second round that led to a stoppage.
