UFC heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva put on an instant classic at UFC Fight Night 33 on Friday, with many proclaiming the 25-minute slugfest the best heavyweight contest in MMA history. 

Therefore, no one seemed to mind that the fight ended in a majority draw.

Needless to say, slinging leather like that is going to lead to some injuries. For "The Super Samoan," that means sitting on the sidelines while a broken left hand heals. 

Hunt posted some X-rays on Facebook for his fans to admire:

While the former K-1 kickboxer may only have a 9-8-1 record inside the cage, Hunt will always be a tremendous fan favorite due to his aggressive fighting style. 

A former title challenger, "Bigfoot" put the UFC's heavyweight division on notice with back-to-back knockouts over Travis Browne and Alistair Overeem. 

While he has lost to current champ Cain Velasquez twice already, Silva remains a force to be reckoned with at 265 pounds. 

According to the UFC's official rankings, Silva is the No. 4 heavyweight fighter in the world while Hunt is unranked, though that could change by tomorrow evening. 

Medical suspensions from UFC Fight Night 33 have not been revealed yet, so it remains up on the air how long this hand injury will keep Hunt on the sidelines.
