Mark Hunt sit-down video interview recaps troubled past, legendary combat career ahead of UFC 180

Mark Hunt will compete for his first-ever mixed martial arts (MMA) title this weekend (Sat., Nov. 15, 2014) when he faces Fabricio Werdum for the interim heavyweight strap at the UFC 180 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Mexico City, Mexico. But before he collides with "Vai Cavalo," Hunt took the time to sit and talk to MMA Fighting about the upcoming tilt, weight-cutting, past troubles as well as current ones. He also looks back at his legendary combat sports career; one that saw him win the K-1 Grand Prix kickboxing tournament in 2001 during a time when he rarely trained, but smoked and drank regularly.
