Silva and Hunt once fought before as they had a classic, bloody, rock em, sock em war back at in Dec. 2013 in a fight many consider not only the greatest heavyweight fight in UFC history. In the end, the fight was a draw and following the event, Silva failed his post-fight drug test due to elevated levels of testosterone.
