According to Sports Navi, PRIDE FC veteran Mark Hunt has signed with the pro wrestling promotion “Hustle”. Hunt made an appearance on the Hustle Mania show last November, as a guest.

Hunt holds notable wins in PRIDE over Wanderlei Silva and Mirko Cro Cop.

It is likely Hunt could fight in K-1 or another MMA organization again, but for now it seems like Hunt is best suited for Pro Wrestling.
