Mark Hunt vs Jr Dos Santos at UFC 160
By Staff Writer

After a week of heavy lobbying by the NZMMA Nation it has now been confirmed that Mark Hunt will square off against Jr Dos Santos at UFC 160 on May 25th.

On Saturday morning, UFC President Dana White confirmed the matchup after a short sparring session of twitter posts regarding the status of the previous scheduled match between Alistair Overeem and Jr Dos Santos.

When Overeem suffered a training injury, Mark Hunt stepped up for the fight with JDS and the New Zealand MMA (NZMMA) Nation began a huge fan assault to support the Super Samoan's bid.

After a short statement by Dana that the fight was turned down by Mark, then a denial by Mark he had EVER turned down a fight, confirmation of the matchup finally came through.

Mark and all his leagues of rabid fans are ecstatic -- and that includes the entire NZMMA Nation.

Thank you Dana White. :)
