THE STATISTICS

LAST FIVE FIGHTS

THE BREAKDOWN

Two very experienced veterans with two very predictable game plans. Mark Hunt will strive for a vintage ‘walk-off’ knockout and Alexsey Oleynik will look to get his hands on the Super Samoan and wrap up a choke.

Hunt has some of the hardest hands in the sport so only needs one opportunity to turn off the lights. However, over the years we have seen the blueprint of how to avoid that knockout threat and take him down plus the Russian is as prolific as it gets on the ground with a staggering 46 submission victories.

This is not a good match-up for Hunt and if Oleynik gets the takedown before absorbing any damage, he is likely to earn another submission win.

Prediction: Oleynik via Submission
