A really, really tall task.
Hunt is 13 inches shorter than his UFC on Fuel TV 8 opponent, the seven-foot giant from the Netherlands, Stefan Struve.
Hunt, who stands just 5-foot-10, heads into the bout fighting a man who has won four-straight fights, and a win moves him closer to a title shot.
"I don't care much about a title," Hunt said in the lead-up to his fight against Stefan Struve, which is slated for March 2 in the co-main event of UFC on Fuel TV 8 at the Saitama Super Arena outside of Tokyo. "A belt, things like that, are meaningless to me."
The 13-inch reach disadvantage will be one of the worst in UFC history, but Hunt is relying heavily on faith to get him through the fight.
"The reason why I do things is because I have surrendered my life to God, man, and that's it, really the easy way of saying why I do what I do. … People say I can't do something; it goes in one ear and out the other," Hunt said. "I know, it's kind of funny.
"The things that were important and really mattered to me in my life before I was a follower of Christ, Jesus Christ, they don't matter that much any more. It's kind of crazy, but it's like I was in the darkness walking around and someone turned the light on. Money doesn't matter; a lot of things don't matter any more. It's just funny. I don't know how better to explain it, but my life is now all about God and understanding more completely what He wants."
