    Default Mark Hunt and Stefan Struve Look to Cross Paths at UFC on Fuel 8 in Japan

    Mark Hunt fans can start banging their drums again because it looks like a fight between he and Stefan Struve is close to becoming official.

    According to MMAWeekly, a source close to the fight confirmed that verbal agreements are in place and the fight between Hunt and Struve will take place March 2 in Japan.

    Struve is currently on a four-fight win streak and has won six of his last seven overall. The seven-footer consistently puts on exciting fights with only one of his 30 professional bouts going the distance.

    The 5'10" Mark Hunt has turned into a fan favorite during 2012 with many of his loyal fans calling for him to get a shot at the heavyweight title.

    Seeing these two guys in the Octagon is going to be quite a scene if it does in fact become official. Struve is 14 inches taller than Hunt, but the New Zealander will no doubt come in as the heavier fighter.

    Hunt's story is quite remarkable. He entered the UFC in 2010 on the heels of a five-fight losing streak. He then lost his UFC debut at UFC 119 against Sean McCorkle just one minute into the fight. Since that point, however, he has rattled off three straight wins against Chris Tuchscherer (UFC 127), Ben Rothwell (UFC 135) and Cheick Kongo (UFC 144).

    The winner of this fight will no doubt make huge strides towards the top of the heavyweight ladder and may be just one additional win away from earning a shot at the title.

    Please keep in mind that this is just a verbal agreement and nothing official has been announced by the UFC.

    Oh man, I've been waiting for this fight for a long time! It should be an exciting fight. I hate to see either of them lose though

    Hunt should have replaced Carwin against Roy, or he should have been Reems opponent. He's earned a shot at getting a shot I think.

    His injuries would have prevented that. He's only recently started training again.

    Not to mention that right now, Stefan should be considered to be closer to a title shot than Nelson. This fight makes sense as far as title contention goes.

    Mark Hunt is a very calm and dangerous man in that cage. I think his hands may be the best in the division. I think he could KO Dos Santos.

    I like both of these guys alot, but if Struve can avoid the bombs, I think his submissions will seal the deal for him with relative ease.
