UFC Fight Night: Hunt v Bigfoot

Just when you thought there were no more superlatives to throw out there for Saturday’s crazy five-round bloodbath between Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva, the fight that has fans already lauding it as nothing short of legendary will get a bit more lore added to it.

According to UFC President Dana White on Sunday, Mark Hunt broke a hand in two places during the fight. White didn’t indicate when the break took place, but Hunt posted photos of the broken hand on his Facebook page.

That Hunt had a broken hand at some point and still kept slinging is nothing new in MMA, but it certainly adds a fun wrinkle to one of the most talked-about fights of the year.

At UFC Fight Night 33, which took place Saturday at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia, Hunt and “Bigfoot” went 25 minutes trading leather, only to have their main event end in a majority draw. Hunt (9-8-1 MMA, 4-2-1 UFC) picked up one 48-47 score from one judge against Silva (18-5-1 MMA, 2-2-1 UFC), while two others scored the fight a 47-47 draw.

mark-hunt-broken-handThe fight was one of the bloodiest in recent memory, with the two heavyweights swinging and slinging punches and elbows, kicks and knees. What the fighters may have lacked in technical style points, they seemed to make up for in drama.

They took turns getting close to finishing, only to have the other push back from the brink. That happened repeatedly as the fans in Hunt’s home country went wild for their favorite – only to see no one walk away the winner.

And that was something both fans and analysts seemed to pick as a theme – there was no winner, but there certainly were no losers, either.

Don’t miss the video highlights of Saturday’s insane slugfest. Then stay tuned to MMAjunkie for more news on Hunt’s injury as it becomes available.
