People were referring to it as AO/Hunt II, they knew it already happened. I think it makes about as much sense as anyone else they'd give him. Hunt is on a streak--has more wins in the UFC than AO does--and as every bit of a talented striker as AO, but with a much better chin; Mark has a great chance to beat him.
Hunt doesn't have a lot of cache in terms of draw, but beating him could look good for AO; conversely, a win for Mark would look GREAT for him and propel him into the next level in terms of reconition for the unwashed masses.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
