If you know mixed martial arts, you most like know Mark Hunt. The Super Samoan, the native New Zealander fighting out of Sydney, Australia. He might be one of the most recognisable UFC fighters on the planet and now EA has announced he will be part of EA Sports UFC.
Mark Hunt’s story is a unique one. A former K1 world champion in kick boxing, Mark Hunt had mixed results in the world of mixed martial arts, beating legends like Wanderlei Silva and Crocop, before going on a now legendary six fight losing streak. When the UFC acquired the Japanese company Pride, they wanted no part of Mark Hunt, to the point where President Dana White offered to buy him out of his contract. Hunt said no, I want to fight.
The rest is history. Mark Hunt went on a tear, destroying top fighters one after another with brutal knockout after brutal knockout, before losing in the third round to ex-Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos with a broken toe.
Most recently he fought to a draw with Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva in a fight many called the greatest Heavyweight bout in MMA history.
He also likes KFC. A lot.
