Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva had an epic 25 minute battle less than two years ago in Australia, but the rematch ended in less than four minutes at UFC 193 on Saturday night.
After a tentative opening few minutes, Hunt rocked Silva up near the cage, and went on the attack. He landed a big right hand to the temple that sent Silva down, and finished it off with one more strike on the ground.
It was a decidedly anti-climactic end given how the first fight played out, but gets Hunt back in the win column for the first time since September of last year. For Bigfoot, it’s his fourth first round (T)KO loss since May of 2013.
