Thread: Mark Hunt: 'If it wasn't for fighting, I'd probably be in jail'

    Mark Hunt: 'If it wasn't for fighting, I'd probably be in jail' - Bloody Elbow

    What's the best part of fighting?

    "Just...the fighting. I hate training. Training I hate. Fighting I like.
    Where would he be without combat sports?

    "If I wasn't a fighter, I'd probably be in jail. I say like I said before, fighting saved my life. As a kid I was always doing stupid things, but combat sports, martial arts...saved me. When everyone else didn't believe in me, it was just me that believed in myself. But fighting, it saved me from that chip on the shoulder. It took that chip away. I didn't have to prove anything."
    On his gameplan:

    "Gameplan? I have a gameplan, I have a great gameplan. My gameplan is just to knock his head off. (laughs) That's the gameplan. (laughs). No, I don't have a gameplan, I don't have any strategies. I just try to make myself better. So, the better I am at fighting, the more he's gonna get hurt."

    Imagine how good he would be if he loved training and worked a lot on his ground game. He would probably be UFC champion now.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    You can say the same about Rampage. Some fighters don't have that drive.
    We seen the difference between a lazy BJ Penn and a motivated BJ Penn. It's what drives you that makes you a champ.

    I like Hunt a lot. I wish he hadnt lost that McCorkle fight but it is what it is. He is HW version of Dan Henderson, with iron jaw, cement fists, but not the best of a ground game. I think his biggest Achilles Heel is his physical shape. If he can work on his strength and conditioning, he can be a champ.

    Thanks for posting this man. I was gonna rep you for this but couldn't. Hunts my favourite HW fighter and I wish he would get to fight for the title someday.

    Mark may lack some training enthusiasm though he is a consummate pro in the ring. On more than one occasion I've been in awe of how he knows when one of his punches lands, that the fighter is going down and will be finished. And Mark just walks away.
