Mark Hunt’s fighting style is clearly a throw back to when humans utilized the bones and hides of other animals to kill other animals. He’s the second former K-1 Grand Prix champion to enter the UFC — Alistair Overeem is the third. It’s like some strange, universal indicator that we’re all supposed to take note of. Sort of like that Swedish guy who tried to build an entire nuclear reactor in the confine of his kitchen. This is supposed to mean something, all of it. Perhaps all of it is supposed to mean something, and not everything. I can handle that, but the vastness of the infinite is what gets me. If everything means something, then it would remove the notion that something means everything — and it will somewhat tame down any existential mystery in this universe. For example, that leftover refried bean on your floor means that you’re just a messy, filthy human being that obviously wasn’t raised on the proper etiquette of cleaning up after yourself when you devour a breakfast burrito at 4:00am on a Friday morning. That is understandable. However, if that bean holds some intrinsic value for the creation of reality — that’s entirely too overwhelming. Is it the bean of life, or just a bean on your floor? That bean is what you make of it, philosopher.
If you feel like getting a little bit more philosophical, Mark Hunt can take your mind there with this breakdown of his variation of ‘the art of fighting.’ Don’t want to ruin it — but it involves a lot of punches to the face. Take a look.
