Dana White: 'No, there won't be an immediate rematch between Mark Hunt and Bigfoot Silva'

Chris Hyde

Sorry, fight fans, but it looks like these two are going their separate ways ... for now.

Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva put on the "sickest heavyweight fight" in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) history, battling out to a majority draw after five-rounds of bloody, back-and-forth action in the main event of UFC Fight Night 33 last Friday night (Dec. 6, 2013) in Brisbane, Australia.

25 minutes of insane action (watch it) plus no clear-cut winner equals an immediate rematch, right?

Wrong.

UFC President Dana White told the gang at Sportsnet that he's all for a second go-round between the "Super Samoan" and "Bigfoot," but with Hunt shattering his hand on the Brazilian's dome (see the pics here), he likely won't be back in action for quite some time.

And Silva's gotta get paid.

"Every morning when I open my eyes, the first thing I think about is Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva. THE sickest heavyweight fight that I have ever seen. I was jumping around the room like a little kid during that fight. I can't stop talking about that fight, I can't stop thinking about that fight. It was amazing! In that fight, Hunt broke his hand in two places, so he's gonna be out for awhile. No, there won't be an immediate rematch. I'm assuming Silva is gonna want to fight again before Hunt is back."

Silva escaped with minor injuries and a new private island.

"Bigfoot" has been busy as a beaver since making his Octagon debut in May 2012, racking up a total of five mixed martial arts (MMA) fights across a span of 19 months for a record of 2-2-1. With no title on the line and nothing but the fans' thirst for blood closure, he'll likely pass on the extended vacation and get back into the cage early next year while Hunt recuperates.

But against who?
