A man of few words, Mark Hunt let his fists do the talking today inside of the legendary Saitama Super Arena.
The New Zealander caught his French adversary early with a precise left hand on the jaw that left the Team Wolfslair fighter wobbled. Hunt maintained his composure refusing to follow his opponent. When the two exchanged again Hunt got the better of Kongo stunning him with a monster right and finishing him with consecutive blows to the skull.
That’s 3 in a row for Hunt now after dropping 6 straight. Do we dare call a man who entered the UFC with a 5-6 record one of the top 20 Heavyweights in the world? My answer is yes.
Final Result: • Mark Hunt (8-7) defeats Cheick Kongo (17-7-2) via TKO (punches) (Round 1, 2:11)
