Chris Hyde

Mark Hunt has gone on record stating he would like to rematch Alistair Overeem.

Mark Hunt has spoken. Despite, breaking his hand on Bigfoot Silva's face in what many have called the greatest heavyweight fight of all-time, Hunt told MMAKanvas.com that he'd like to fight the recently victorious Alistair Overeem. A rematch of their fight in defunct Japanese promotion, DREAM, over 5 years ago.

MMAMania has the transcript:

"Rematches are always good. I’ve never lost a rematch with any fighter. I always like to avenge my losses, too. I saw Alistair in Japan (and) we were talking, he’s a nice guy but as a fighter, he’s got it over me, I’ve got to get it over this guy. It’s a match I’d like to have... the outcome won’t be the same."

"It won’t be the same as the last time. He won last time so… "

Dana White made it very public that Overeem did not want to fight Junior dos Santos. Overeem cited a rib injury as his reason for not accepting. However, now the only question is will Overeem accept the Mark Hunt rematch?
