Fabricio Werdum vs. Mark Hunt full fight video preview: UFC 180

When Cain Velasquez went down injured, the powers that be acted fast in recruiting Mark Hunt to step in and save the day. He'll do just that when he battles Fabricio Werdum for the interim heavyweight championship in the main event of tonight's (Sat., Nov. 15, 2014) UFC 180 pay-per-view (PPV) in Mexico City, Mexico. But will this hero find a happy ending? Or will this story end in tragedy?


"I'm not afraid at all. As soon as we step into the ring, it's going to be the best fight in UFC history. I know he has a strong chin, but if I have an opportunity in the second or third rounds, when he's tired I'll submit him or knock him down. I will represent Latin America, Mexico, Brazil, and my family. I will fight a good fight, and be the new UFC champion."


"Fans love my style because I'm here to knock your face off. I can knock out anyone on this planet. My coaches make up some sort of plans but I just go in there and try to hurt them as much as I can. I don't really care what he wants to do in the fight. I'm only going to worry about what I want to do and try and knock him out. Mark Hunt UFC heavyweight champion has a nice ring to it; sounds great."

See you tonight!
