Roy Nelson vs. Mark Hunt: An Early Head-to-Toe Breakdown

Later this year, the UFC will be going back to Japan for UFC Fight Night 52, and they're going to bring a great main event with them.

In the heavyweight division, the winner of the 10th season of The Ultimate Fighter, Roy Nelson, will face off against fan-favorite Mark "Super Samoan" Hunt.

Nelson has won three of his last five, all three with knockouts, and he earned a post-fight award in two of them. Hunt's last fight was a draw against Antonio Silva, and before that, Hunt lost to Junior dos Santos.

When the two of them meet in the center of the Octagon, there are sure to be fireworks.
