So says Dana White…
- At today's UFC 158 press conference, Dana White spoke about the upcoming Mark Hunt vs. Junior Dos Santos fight. White stated that if Hunt (9-7 MMA, 4-1 UFC) scored a knockout victory over the former champion Junior dos Santos (15-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC) at May's UFC 160 event, that Hunt would be in line for a UFC Heavyweight Title shot.
Hunt takes the fight following Alistair Overeem being forced to withdraw from the event due to injury. Once riding a six fight losing streak, Hunt has now won four straight fights in the UFC.
