This Friday night, Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva collide in a critical battle in the Heavyweight division. Both men need a win to stay relevant and will be looking to finish the fight in spectacular fashion.

Hunt (9-8) is coming off a loss at UFC 160 to former Heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos, in a wild battle. Hunt showed incredible heart, eating power punches from the best striker in the division. Ultimately, he succumbed to an incredible spinning heel kick KO from JDS. Before that loss, Hunt was on four fight win streak with 3 wins by TKO/KO.

Silva (18-5) is also coming off a loss at UFC 160. In his rematch with Heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez, Silva was once again dominated by Cain en route to a TKO loss. Before that fight, Silva had an awe-inspiring comeback KO over Alistair Overeem to earn his shot at the title.

Editor-in-chief, Josh Sanchez, and I will break down each fight from the main card and predict the winners. After the TUF 18 Finale, where I went 5-0 on my picks, Josh and I are now tied with 25-17 records.
