UFC Fight Night 52: Hunt vs Nelson Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

The Octagon continues its international tour, leaving Brazil and heading to the land of the rising sun for UFC Fight Night 52. Headlining the promotion’s return to Japan will be a Heavyweight slugfest between the ‘Super Samoan’ knockout machine Mark Hunt and the equally as dangerous ‘Big Country’ Roy Nelson.

Nelson is fresh off a devastating walk away KO of former Pride Legend and UFC Heavyweight champion Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira. Not to be outdone, Hunt went to war with Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva in one of the best Heavyweight bouts in recent memory, battling to a draw. In a division that is always in need of new title challengers, a win here for either man will move them one massive step closer to a shot at the title.

In the co-main event Takanori Gomi returns to action when he battles #9 ranked Lightweight Myles Jury. Despite closing in on the end of his career, Gomi has proven to be still dangerous and capable competing at the highest level of competition. He will provide a stiff test for the undefeated Jury who holds victories over the likes of Diego Sanchez and Michael Johnson.

The main card will also feature the return of fan favourite Yoshihiro Akiyama, the debut of undefeated Women’s Bantamweight Rin Nakai when she meets former title contender Miesha Tate, and 3rd appearance of the devastating Flyweight striker Kyoji Horiguchi.
