Junior Dos Santos and Mark Hunt went to war at UFC 160 in a contender match for the ages. Hunt was on an inspirational four fight win streak, rapidly becoming a fan favorite in a cinderella story. JDS was coming off his first loss in five years, and was really fired up for 160.
After defending his UFC Heavyweight title once, against Frank Mir, Dos Santos was brutally dethroned by former Champion Cain Velasquez. The five round beating that Santos took at UFC 155 spoke volumes about the Brazilian’s determination.
Hunt is a very dangerous opponent, his heavy hands had broken Stefan Struve’s jaw in March and he was looking to take Dos Santos out. The result was an incredible three round war with a spectacular finish.
