Mark Hunt produced another walk-off knockout win after sending Frank Mir to the canvas at UFC Brisbane on Saturday night and as you would expect the Twittersphere had their say.
It only took the New Zealander three minutes to land the vicious right-hand to the soft, beautiful tissue at the back of Mir’s ear. The Hollywood walk-off following the knockdown was the icing on the cake for Hunt, his second straight first-round knockout.
In case you missed it….

The win for “The Super Samoan” will put him right back into the heavyweight title mix that’s seeing more viable contenders emerge from the woodwork.
Hunt nearly tasted UFC gold back in late-2014 at UFC 180, losing an interim title fight against current champion Fabricio Werdum, who is set to defend his title against Stipe Miocic at UFC 198 this May.
