Im curious if the popular opinion has changed after ufc 156. What do you guys think of this match up now??? Last time people were saying that Overeem would take him down with ease and finish it from there. I definitely was capable of seeing that end result also but i also was really intrigued by the potential standup fight we could get. Mark Hunts striking has looked extremely impressive as of late. Throwing out a single punch and walking away before the opponent even hits the floor. And Overeems ground work seemed pretty much non existent. Sure he got Big-foot down but he did literally no damage while down there. So im actually even more excited by this potential fight. Id love for a chance to see Mark Hunt knock Overeem out.
Mark Hunt has asked for this fight before so im sure he would still be happy to take it.
So if JDS vs Overeem does not work out would anyone like to see Hunt vs Overeem instead?? Or am i the lone sheep here.
After hunt gets by struve I would rather hunt fight bigfoot or cain with no clear cut contenders around bar werdum who wouldn't fight a title fight until a few months after he presumably beats big nog, I always thought Hunt was a better striker than reem anyways so no surprise here Hunt's TDD has been good lately so he would KO reem in round 1 if they fought in my opinion.
