-- Remember that Mark Hunt — Junior dos Santos bout that UFC president Dana White said isn't happening? Now it is. MMA Fighting reports the two will meet at UFC 160 in May. Dos Santos was supposed to fight Alistair Overeem on that weekend, but an injury took Overeem out of the bout.
This will be dos Santos' first fight since losing the UFC heavyweight belt to Cain Velasquez. Hunt is currently riding a four-fight winning streak, with the most recent win coming over Stefan Struve on March 3.
-- UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson had successful surgery over the weekend to repair a torn labrum. The injury forced him out of his April 13 title defense. Johnson will find out later this week how long his rehab should last.
-- Lightweight Joe Lauzon's last bout was a memorable loss to Jim Miller at UFC 155. Damage from that fight caused considerable scar tissue in Lauzon's face. He is in (kinda gross) treatment to break the scar tissue up and hopes to return to action this summer.
