Rally for Mark Hunt video for UFC 146 title fight against Junior dos Santos

This thing really isn't going to go away, is it?

By now you know the story, or at least you should. Alistair Overeem was popped for elevated levels of testosterone at a surprise drug test at a UFC 146 press conference and his main event title shot against Junior dos Santos on May 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, was throw into question.

"The Reem" now has a hearing set with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) on April 24 to see about getting licensed for the fight, which is most definitely up in the air at this point.

Not long after his test failure, fans of mixed martial arts (MMA) quickly took to Twitter to do their fantasy booking thing and the name that just kept coming up was Mark Hunt. It grew to the point that the "Super Samoan" even signed up for the social media service. He's now closing in on 10,000 followers.

And videos from prominent artists like the infamous NickTheFace are starting to prop up more and more.

Does Hunt actually deserve a title shot? He's won three fights in a row inside the Octagon, finishing two of them. His biggest win, however, was against Cheick Kongo and his career record is still a paltry 8-7.

I don't know about all this #RallyForMarkHunt business, Maniacs. What are your thoughts?
