UFC: What will be the biggest challenge for you during the show?
Hunsinger: The biggest challenge will be to be away from my wife and my son, but there is nothing that I am more qualified for. I’ve been doing this for eight years now and have dedicated my life to it, so I’m ready.
UFC: What makes you a force to be reckoned with in the Octagon?
Hunsinger: I think I have the power, that eliminatory power that Conor McGregor has. I feel that I have this Khabib [Nurmagomedov] style struggle to suffocate people and maim people. I really want the world to see it.

Hunsinger: Just be genuine. I think I’m a cool laid back guy and people will be able to relate to that. I don’t take any BS from these fighters, but neither am I.
UFC: Why will you be the winner of The Ultimate Fighter?
Hunsinger: it’s going to be me because I sacrificed my life for this sport and I dedicated my life to this sport. I really believe I can dig deeper than anyone.
