Nelson knocked Cheick Kongo out in the first round for his third first-round KO in a row.
Hunt still has a major task ahead of him. Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos lays in wait at UFC 160. A stunning upset victory could even elevate Hunt to a title shot, but it is not guaranteed.
Should the stars align to give us Nelson vs. Hunt, many fans would be excited, and the fight would almost assuredly provide a finish.
This is a look at the potential fight between Hunt and Nelson.
