Mark Hunt finished Chris Tuchscherer in the second round at UFC 127 with a hard uppercut.

Fortunately for fans who were hoping they could relive the PRIDE era, Mark Hunt has answered your calls! After an opening round that saw Hunt batter Tuchscherer with superior punching, Hunt blasted Tuchscherer with a right uppercut in the second round, dropping "The Crowbar" to his knees. Hunt nonchalantly walked away, knowing it was over. Tuchscherer tried to stand back up to his feet, but he was unable to continue. The fight ended at 1:41 of the second round.

In the other untelevised, unaired preliminary bout of the evening at UFC 127, heavyweight Chris Tuchscherer (21-3-0-1) and Mark Hunt (5-7) squared off in a must-win contest for both fighters. Tuchscherer was knocked out by rising prospect Brendan Schaub at UFC 116 in July in a quick one minute and seven seconds while Hunt succumbed to a straight armbar submission at the hands of Sean McCorkle at UFC 119. Hunt had previously lost five straight bouts, going back nearly five years to his PRIDE days. 

Hunt is most famous for his success in K-1 and his five-fight winning streak during the early portion of his mixed martial arts career. Wins over Wanderlei Silva, Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic, and a near-win over Fedor Emelianenko at PRIDE Shockwave 2006 opened up the eyes of fans to the notion that Hunt could be a legitimate heavyweight contender in time, but his lacking discipline to staying in shape and training has led to multiple losses.
