Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight slugger Mark Hunt, who was knocked out by Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 last Saturday night (May 25, 2013) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch it again here), says he also suffered a fractured toe in the first round of his melee against "Cigano."
The "Super Samoan" updates fans via his official Facebook page:
There's the toes troops 6 stitches and fractured bone
No word yet on how long Hunt will be on the shelf, but his mangled piggy is the least of his concerns.
Heading into the UFC 160 event (results here), the former K-1 kickboxing champion -- winner of four straight -- was just one fight away from a shot at the title, currently held by Cain Velasquez, but must now return to the back of a very long line.
Unless someone gets injured, or if he can pull off a "Bigfoot" Silva and get himself into the main event of next year's Memorial Day Weekend pay-per-view (PPV) fight card.
Anything is possible.
