Jason Momoa Haka Dance Good Luck Charm for Mark Hunt's UFC Fight

Jason Momoa Performs Haka Dance for UFC Fighter Mark Hunt

Exclusive Details

Jason Momoa gave one hell of a sendoff to his UFC pal Mark Hunt by performing a haka dance ... shirts off, tongues out and all.

We're told Mark and Jason struck up a friendship over the last 6 weeks while they were both in Australia -- Mark training for his fight against Derrick Lewis, and Jason filming for "Aquaman."  They've been working out at the same gym called Heartbreak. 

As a good luck gesture for Mark's fight next month in New Zealand, Jason -- as well as cast and crew and some of Hunt's training partners -- performed that country's traditional war dance ... the haka. Jason and Mark are both of Samoan descent ... from where the dance originates.

Jason will be attending Mark's fight.

Anyway, from the looks of these vids ... Mark wasn't expecting the whole shebang. Surprised much?
