Magnaminous words (below) from the defeated Mark Hunt after his face got in the way of Fabricio Werdum’s knee at last night’s UFC 180 bout in Mexico City.

I love the ones you don’t see and I didn’t see that one.

The Brazilian seized the UFC interim heavyweight championship with this second-round knockout of Hunt to set up a possible unification bout with undisputed champ Cain Velasquez –  if the American recovers from injury that has sidelined him for over a year.

Hunt came out swinging and the New Zealander dropped Werdum early on before this knee to the mush and a series of hammer fists forced the referee to stop the fight after 2:27 minutes of the second round.

Velasquez may just be pushing back that recovery date a little longer …
