Croatian-American heavyweight Stipe Miocic (12-2) is wary but confident ahead of his May 10 showdown against ‘Super Samoan’ New Zealand born Aussie Mark Hunt (10-9-1).

Miocic is ranked fourth among the UFC heavyweights, has only recently lost a razor thin decision against incumbent champion Junior Dos Santos (17-3), and is a gifted athlete.

Hunt, on the other side of the Octagon, has KOed some of the biggest names in the division. He is a former K-1 Kickboxing World Champion and veteran of the PRIDE MMA franchise.

Both men have the skill and power to end the night early. Both men will need all their cunning and ability to be the one dishing out, not receiving, the punishment.

“I think in the heavyweight division you’ve always got to watch (for) the big shots,” said Micoc. “They’re big boys, they can throw some leather. I just go out and do what I do, and I’ll be alright.”

“He’” (Mark Hunt), “has definitely got a lot better. He’s definitely worked on his game. But I think I’m better in a lot of the aspects of the game.

Miocic doesn’t expect his fight with Hunt to go the full five rounds. “I don’t care how it’s going to happen,” he continued, “I’m going to win. But I don’t expect five rounds.”
