Prior to Saturday, the last time the world saw Hunt, he was scoring a devastating knockout of long un-knockout-able stalwart Roy Nelson. After that, he ret read news >>

Before April’s decision loss to a resurgent Anthony Johnson, he hadn’t tasted defeat in more than two years, and his three-fight win streak included a victory over former champion Lyoto Machida. Nonetheless, Davis’ Saturday showdown with Glover Teixeira feels steeped in read news >>
