This last weekend’s blockbuster fight between Mark Hunt and Bigfoot Silva was truly epic, but what most people need to understand is that it is rather one-of-a-kind. It might not be possible to recapture the magic of that first fight, which is something that both men seem to realize, which is actually kind of cool. Sure, I’d like to see them fight again, but would they have as good of a fight?
Probably not. Mark Hunt seems to feel that way and really, who is going to argue with Mark Hunt? [source]
“Honestly? No,” said Hunt. “It probably wouldn’t be as good as the first one. It would probably end a lot quicker. So honest opinion, no. Why ruin a good thing?”
“I’m always going to think that I’m the best fighter in the world at the end of the day. I wouldn’t still be fighting if I didn’t think so. People might look at me like I’m stupid when I say that, but those are my thoughts, my opinions. I want to compete, and that’s why I’m still here, still doing this. I don’t care what anyone says.”
