UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem posted an interesting photo on his Instagram (@AlistairOvereem) today. It shows a fight poster for the UFC on FOX SPORTS 1:1 card with Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson as the headliner, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Chael Sonnen and Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne all slated for the Aug. 17 event in Boston
UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt (9-7) (4-1 UFC) is one huge win away from fighting for the UFC heavyweight title. UFC President Dana White told a group of reporters following the UFC 158 press conference that took place earlier today in Canada, that Hunt would “likely” earn a title shot if he knocked out former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 160.
Mark Hunt will officially replace the injured Alistair Overeem at UFC 160 this May, when he faces off against former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos. Talk of Hunt stepping in to take the fight began to swirl on Twitter earlier in the week; however, UFC President Dana White initially dismissed the rumor, claiming that Hunt had been offered the fight but turned it down.
