mark-hunt-bigfootExcellent use of the knockout Mauricio!

In other UFC Fight Night news that is not so easily gifable, Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva fought to one of the most epic and fitting draws in the history of the sport. I mean, this fight was awesome. Fight of the Year-worthy stuff. By the end of the fight both men were covered in blood and barely able to stand on their own. It was the kind of fight we’ll write songs and poems and blog posts about. Ben Fowlkes has more words on the brawl over at MMA Junkie if you’re interested.
