We love Mark Hunt because he’s the anti-Conor McGregor and Chael Sonnen. While all of the these fighters embrace their violent lifestyle without inhibition, Mark Hunt doesn’t stand in front of his bathroom mirror with a comb acting as a microphone practicing promos. Nope. Mark Hunt is real, man. Mark Hunt will look directly into his phone, adjust his hair because that’s just something that you absolutely have to do when you see your face on an outgoing digital message, then give you twenty minutes of rambling explanation that just makes you want to watch him fight more.
Mark Hunt doesn’t rip off 30-year-old wrestling promos, he doesn’t talk about resting his grapefruit-sized Samoan balls on anyone’s forehead, he just mumbles and makes himself giggle and lets you know that you didn’t know about the interim title. This is why we love Mark Hunt. He’s hashtag real.
