With Alistair Overeem injured with a projected five week recovery, and out of his fight with Junior Dos Santos at UFC 160, many in the hardcore fanbase clamored, again, for Mark Hunt to get a title shot. Again, it looks like it is not going to happen.

A fan reached out to UFC president Dana White via Twitter and asked for Hunt vs. JDS.

“Not lookin good,” tweeted White. “Cigano vs Overeem in the summer.”

Overeem offered details on the injury, also via Twitter.

“Injured! Caught a slightly tear in my quad muscle,” tweeted Overeem. “So unfortunately out of may 25 UFC. Not happy to let you guys ‘the fans’ down!”
