One of the legends of mixed martial arts and kickboxing, Mark Hunt, has sent a message to Henry ‘HenryG’ Greer and Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill at IEM Sydney.

The highly anticipated IEM Sydney Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event is in full swing and it has already produced a number of surprising results.

The most notable of these came when the legendary SK Gaming were eliminated on day one following shock upset losses to TyLoo and Grayhound.

FaZe Clan also had a scare after suffering a best of three loss to Renegades and then having to go to a Dust 2 decider map against Grayhound in the Group A elimination match.

But the professional matches aren’t the only storylines to grab the attention of fans as two members of the broadcasting team, HenryG and SPUNJ, will be facing off against each other in a showmatch.

SPUNJ, the hometown favorite, has already announced that he will be teaming up with some of his former Vox Eminor/Renegades teammates for the game but things got a great deal scarier for HenryG on May 2nd when MMA legend Mark Hunt said he’ll also be in the Austrlian team’s corner.

In a post on Facebook and Twitter, Hunt said “There’s this arrogant English fella named HenryG picking on my boy SPUNJ” before stating “I’m coming for you Henry!”

Hunt was born in New Zealand and now lives in Australia. Famous for his walk-off knockouts in both kickboxing and MMA, the “Super Samoan” definitely belongs on the list of people that you don’t want to mess with.

Hunt has expressed his love for CS:GO in the past and the news that he’ll be at IEM Sydney has got a lot of fans excited – If he decides to join the server for the showmatch you can guarantee that he will get the loudest cheer of the weekend.

HenryG’s UK team, whose roster is currently unannounced, will certainly have their work cut out against the former and current Australian pros that SPUNJ is bringing to the party.

However, the Brit was one of the most successful UK players in the history of Counter-Strike: Source and you can be sure that he’ll have a trick or two up his sleeve for the match which is due to take place on Sunday May 6th.

How arT’s aggression is leading FURIA’s CSGO charge to site

Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has led FURIA to the top of NA Counter-Strike thanks not only to his calling but also his ultra-aggressive playstyle. 

Dexerto explores the Brazilian’s signature aggression and how it has defined him as the most offensive player in CSGO history. 

His playstyle slowly leaked into his strategies, making FURIA one of the most aggressive teams in the world: allowing them to become the most successful T-side team over the last few months. 

This was clear during ESL Pro League 11 NA, where arT’s aggressive pushes and misdirection on Inferno led the team to a dominant win against the best NA had to offer. All this while delivering some of the most entertaining CS ever. 

The importance of his dual-role as a IGL and Entry-Fragger is not lost, allowing him to quickly adapt his calling after going first into bombsites. 

ArT has led FURIA to become true contenders on the world stage but now the difficult part begins: keeping ahead of the curve and keep the elements of surprise on his side.
