There's something so cool about UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt (10-8-1)—entrancing even. He's a human paradox, a man whose very existence defies the carefully crafted rules that govern the world of combat sports. A gargantuan with neck tattoos and fists of granite, he should be one of the scariest men alive. A man who beats people up for a living definitely shouldn't exude such zen and peace, even in the midst of carnage. And yet... In the cage there are no secrets, not when Hunt, 40, is fighting. Hi read news >>

According to Nelson, Velasquez has been sheltered, presumably by the UFC, in order to protect him from, well, Nelson. "I think Cain Velasquez has only fought the same guy over and over the last couple of years, because they don't want to change (the champion)," Nelson told FOX Sports.
