On paper, Mark Hunt vs. Roy Nelson resembles a heavyweight death match between an armed nuclear warhead and The Hulk. With chins made from an outer-space, extraterrestrial metal, Hunt and Nelson each hold the ingredients to combine for one of the best heavyweight tilts we've ever seen. As each knockout artist comes into UFC Fight Night 52 this Saturday securely positioned within the division's top 10, the victor may very well reap the spoils. A decisive finish for Hunt or Nelson could propel eit read news >>

Based on preliminary numbers, it's hard to come to a conclusion as to what it meant for Bellator and UFC to go head-to-head on Friday night, past that it doesn't appear either hurt the other signific read news >>
