UFC president Dana White went on record as saying the UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt will receive a shot at the title with a knockout victory over Junior dos Santos. White made the statement following the UFC 158 pre-fight press conference.
White stated in the scrum:
“It’s crazy to say, … but if he knocks Junior dos Santos out, how is this guy not next in line?”
Hunt currently holds the longest win-streak in the heavyweight division at four wins. The “Super Samoan” has not lost since his UFC debut, knocking out Stefan Struve in devastating fashion at UFC on FUEL TV 8.
Hunt will face the former UFC champion at UFC 160.
