The UFC certainly teased the prospect.Some, in particular those close to now ex-champ Holly Holm (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC), hoped Tate (18-5 MMA, 5-2 UFC) might instead fight an immediate rematch, who was put to sleep by the champ just four months after her shocking knockout victory over Rousey (10-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) at UFC 193.Tate Vs Nunes Fight UFC 200.The former front-rower is almost as wide as he is tall, dwarfing Mike Tyson in a recent photo, and cites players from both rugby codes - Israel Folau, Paul Gallen, Jason Stevens and the Fainga'a twins - as sportsmen he admires. While playing league professionally appealed at one point, Hunt reckons he was "born to fight".
Following in Hunt's footsteps is the emerging Aussie UFC star, 21 year-old lightweight (77kg) prospect Jake Matthews, who takes on talented 23 year-old American wrestler Kevin Lee in The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale on UFC Fight Pass on Friday night (NZT Saturday).
Matthews has strong MMA heritage: his father, Mick, with whom he jointly runs an MMA gym in Melbourne, was a national taekwondo champ while his mum competed at state level.


Since the UFC's Ronda Rousey and Holy Holm card in Melbourne, which packed 56,000 people into Ethiad stadium, Matthews has noticed a big increase in local interest in the sport, especially among females.
Father Mick says Australians are culturally disposed to succeeding in MMA because "we're tough and live much of our life outdoors", which for Jake involved dirt-bike riding, wakeboarding, rock-climbing and abseiling.
With quiet assurance the ascendant UFC light-weight says he could "beat current world-champion Rafael Dos Anjos today," and hopes to pip Mark Hunt and Rob Whittaker, a middleweight contender, to be the first Aussie to win a UFC title.
Whereas Hunt was forged as a fighter by necessity, Matthews is the 21st century professional athlete that's already earning more than similarly ranked Australians in boxing, says Mick.
Interestingly, Matthews is inspired not by the accomplishments of other sportspeople but by the deeds of the Special Air Service Regiment, Australia's elite counter-terrorist unit, recently touring their secret barracks in Perth.
"Those are the guys making the real sacrifices," he says, nominating Keith Fennell's book Warrior Brothers about life in the SAS as his favourite.
