All the guys besides McCorkle that Hunt has been sub'd by are superior grapplers than Struve.
Barnett, Fedor, and Mousasi are much better. Overeem may be a toss up, but he has found subs many of times in his career.
Hunt's record sucks, but he has fought straight killers. And Kongo/Rothwell might be better than anyone Struve has ever beat.
Is it hype? Or is it playful cheering? Do people really think #RallyForHunt is very serious? People are just fans. I have never seen anyone here or anywhere claim Hunt as a top 5 or even that he could be top 5. I have seen maybe a couple people put him at the back end of their top 10.
Perhaps I have missed it. I am a fan. And I would love to see him KO Overeem. But I thought most Hunt talk is out of fandom and Samoan Atomic Butt Drops.
Or perhaps the playfulness of it all goes right over some people's heads.
You could be right Ive never really paid that much attention to most of the conversations as I wouldn't call myself a Hunt fan. I dont dislike him or anything, he's just not one of my favourites.
