If you went into the Mark Hunt vs. Bigfoot Silva match-up with low expectations, then you would’ve been happy with a quick KO. But we didn’t get a quick KO – we got an five-round war waged by these two heavyweight warriors upon each other. How good was Hunt vs. Bigfoot? It was this good…
It was so good, it elicited these response across the Twitterverse:

That was the stupidest and most wonderful fight ever. Mark Hunt and Bigfoot are something more than human.
