Mark Hunt sits down with Ariel Helwani ahead of UFC 180 title bout

New, 25 comments

Mark Hunt talked about his feelings and his mental state ahead of his bout with Fabricio Werdum at UFC 180.

Even in a twenty minute sit down interview it appears to be pretty difficult to drag information out of Mark Hunt. Still, the net effect is more than the some of its parts, as Ariel Helwani was able to get the interim title challenger to open up a biton his feelings about his combat sports accomplishments, his status as a role model to young fighters, and quite a bit more.

Or, at least, snippets of quite a bit more... things don't appear to quite get off on the right foot for Helwani, here. As Hunt revealed that he is currently grappling with some non-fight related problems ahead of UFC 180. He was unwilling to get into what they were, but just at the end of the video, he revealed that all was not harmonious at the moment in the Hunt household. A surprisingly honest and potentially worrying revelation ahead of Hunt's bout with Fabricio Werdum. Check out the whole thing above.

UFC 180: Werdum vs. Hunt takes place this Saturday, November 15th in Mexico City, Mexico on PPV.
