The UFC 160 fight card just got a whole lot stronger with the addition of two of the hardest-hitting heavyweights in the world as Mark Hunt will square off against former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.

According to MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani, the fight was put together on Thursday evening and officially announced on Saturday morning.

Dos Santos vs. Hunt will take place on May 25th's UFC 160 fight card, replacing what was originally a bout between dos Santos and former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem. A groin injury caused Overeem to be physically unable to fight, clearing the path for Hunt in what might be the biggest opportunity of his MMA career. 

Fans are pumped for this fight and rightfully so. Here are five of the biggest reasons fans are looking forward to dos Santos vs. Hunt.
