After Mark Hunt’s knock down, drag out war with Bigfoot Silva and fight with JDS fans have been waiting with baited breath for his next war, with the rumor being Roy Nelson. It looks like that fight between Roy Nelson and Mark Hunt is just about official and we are just waiting on the UFC to announce it. Where will it take place? UFC Fight Night Japan on September 20th.

Since it is a Fight Night event, expect it to be on Fight Pass — as long as Fight Pass is still a thing by then — because it’ll be taking place in Japan at a weird hour. Roy Nelson vs. Mark Hunt should be one of the most fun brawls of the year, so we are totally on board with it. [source]
