Bigfoot Silva plans on subbing Hunt tomorrow at UFC Fight Night

Yes, Mark Hunt is “sub-able,” but he’s actually greatly improved his ground game in recent years. Did you know he’s a brown belt in BJJ? Yep. Howver, Bigfoot is a black belt, and he could likely get on top of Hunt with his massive frame and work his way to a submission. Not every black belt is a great black belt blah blah.

While this indeed seems like the best thing for Bigfoot, I think he should slug it out. Imagine saying you stood toe to toe with Overeem, Fedor AND Mark Hunt and came out the victor.

MMAFighting got the quote:

“He’s a striker with a huge experience, did some great fights at K-1, so the perfect way to win this fight would obviously be using my jiu-jitsu, I’ve trained a lot of jiu-jitsu and wrestling, but I also worked on my striking game. The fight starts standing and I have to be prepared for everything.

“If I see some openings to end the fight standing, I will. I’ve always did great against strikers, like Alistair Overeem, Travis Browne, Fedor Emelianenko. I’ll go for the knockout if I have the opportunity, but taking him to the ground will be my game plan.”
