Mark Hunt targets revenge over Fabricio Werdum at UFC 221 in Perth, reports
Mark Hunt has been cleared by doctors in the US. He is expected to return to action at UFC 221 held on February 11 at Perth Arena, which marks the debut of Ultimate Fighting Championship in Western Australia.
K-1 kickboxing legend, who is currently ranked No.5 in the UFC heavyweight class, Mark Hunt has undergone medical tests at the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas. On Tuesday The Daily Telegraph quotes Hunt’s manager, who confirmed that “The Super Samoan” is good to compete.
“The doctor said Mark scored well above average and that he’s good to compete,” Zen Ginnen said. “So they’ll ring the UFC now and let them know. We’re just waiting on the UFC to clear him.”
Before flying across the sea, Mark Hunt stated that he got tested by brain experts in Australia and was given the “green light” to compete. However, UFC required the tests to be made in the US.
In addition, according to the reports “The Super Samoan” aims to rematch Fabricio Werdum. The Brazilian fighter is victorious over Hunt by TKO in November 2014. He has also replaced the latter in the recent UFC Fight Night in Sydney, when Hunt was withdrawn due to “medical issues” that have now appear to be resolved.
