Mark Hunt vs. Antônio Silva 1
We waste no time getting this list going with this heavyweight war. Did you forget about this fight already?
Mark Hunt and Antônio Silva collided at UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The two heavyweights fought tooth and nail in this back-and-forth five-round war that ultimately ended in a draw. These two would meet up again just about two years later but the “Super Samoan” would easily knock out the injury-laden “Bigfoot” in that meeting.
Hunt has given MMA fans some of the most thrilling knockouts the sport has ever seen. Although he was unable to land the walk-off shot on Silva in their first meeting, the Australian fans were left with one of the greatest heavyweight fights the sport has ever seen.
