Mark Hunt and "Bigfoot" Silva should have a rematch...someday

Fans are still reeling over the encounter that between “The Super Samoan” Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva that went to a draw.

Many folks would agree that the clash between Hunt and Silva is a late candidate for “Fight of the Year.” Despite the praise from fans and critics, there will not be an immediate rematch between Hunt and Silva.

UFC President Dana White mentioned that a rematch may not take place right away as Hunt broke his hand in two places. White said that Silva would probably want a fight before the time the former K-1 Grand Prix champion heals.

Even if Hunt was healthy, I think postponing the rematch for an event in late 2014 or early 2015 would be a smart move. It would give fans something to look forward to down the road. The rematch could also headline the next event held in Australia.
