UFC announcer Joe Rogan has expressed a measure of support for fan efforts to get UFC Heavyweight Mark Hunt a title shot against Junior dos Santos should Alistair Overeem be unable to get licensed for the May 26th bout. Rogan posted on the UG:
There are some wise people on this board, and I support this movement.
Style wise that might be the most exciting match up. Either way, even if Hunt doesn't replace the reem I would still love to see this matchup down the road, especially considering how good Hunt looked against Kongo.
Has anyone started a twitter bomb campaign for this?

What do you think? Are you supporting Hunt? Hoping Overeem can somehow still convince the NSAC to license him? Rooting for Fedor? Calling for Frank Mir?
