I can't help but feel what sort of monster Mark Hunt could have been in the MMA world, if he had the application and dedication to training most other fighters have.

It's amazing to think what he has achieved so far has all basically been achieved on his raw talent for the sport (and chin of course).

I can only imagine the imrovements to Hunt's game if he were a full-time member of a gym such as Coutoure's or Team Quest for example.

He could have been something very specal. As for now, I would love to see him fight Arlovski in Affliction, if they could agree on a catch weight.

They had him under contract for a year 1/2 but they didn't know what to do with him. The only question I have is didn't he come under 265 once or twice in Pride?

I'd hope so. If he is serious when saying he can't make weight then.. That is just pathetic. I mean no disrespect to him but come on! The dude is 5'10" so he has none of that natural weight going due to a large height. That should benefit him right there. The biggest thing is right here.. It isn't like he's bulky, I'd understand why he'd have problems then. He has alot of body fat that he could easily get rid of. All he has to do is have a well balanced diet. He could easily make weight if he wanted to in my opinion.

Yeah...Hunt's Takedown's aren't good...but his Takedown defense is. Hunt is a better striker by far. Brock flipping Herring end over end with 1 punch was impressive, but that won't happen to Mark Hunt if they fought. Mark Hunt's chin is perhaps the best, with respect to Cabbage. It's gonna take multiple power punches to drop Hunt. Even when Hunt fought Fedor, Fedor couldn't get off with any big punches, and he usually does. Hunt is too intelligent of a fighter to let Lesner pound on him. Besides...Lesner's chin has not been tested...and Mark Hunt would certainly test it.

Why are people so down for Hunt/Lesnar?

I'm with Arlovski Fan on this one, Lesnar would dominate Hunt.

If you want to talk about good match-ups with Hunt, you should be talking about Hunt vs. Sylvia/Arlovski/Aleks E, these are much funner.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Hunt vs Aleks/AA would be sick. Although I think AA would go for a sub somewhat like Overeem did, but Aleks fo sho!

I heard a while back he was talking to the UFC but he couldn't make the weight limit for heavy weight. I wish he could he would be a great addition to the HW division.

It's not that he can't make the weight, he doesn't want to.
