You're betting Barnett out? I'm really surprised. There is not doubt about Hunt's granite freaking head and his awesome standup, but I've never been impressed with his TD defense. Barnett is primarily a wrestler and grappler and likes to do what he has to to win. He isn't the kind of guy that feels he has to prove anything (like most of Liddell's opponents). My prediction is Barnett is going to take Hunt down and either submit him or win via decision.

The good thing is any guy here can still win. But I can only see Hunt winning if he manages to beat Barnett, then gets to fight the winner of Fujita/Silva, and then hopes to god Cro Cop beats Nogueira and then gets to fight Cro Cop. That's the easiest road for Hunt, and as we can see it aint easy AT all. Unless he's been working his TD defense...

Mark Hunt has a chance but I think Crocop might win because he promised if he didn't win he will retire and I would hate to see him retire after what hes done to PRIDE. I really hope he wins and doesn't lose. But if he doesn't win it will be Mark Hunt or Antonio. Antonio has only lost to the best in the business Fedor Emelianenko.

Wandy Beat Cro cop in they're K-1 MMA ruled match(Even though it was tigh most people think he won)He could have beaten Hunt wich most likely he will.
If he goes up against Nog he cant win on the ground at all,SO he will have to stick with his best skills and thats standing.


It could be anyones game though,Cro Cop is very Hyped up for this and always has a strikers chance.Same with Hunt
Big Nog defeated Cro by submission in their last fight.He has some of the best ground game in Pride.

Yeah your right it's impossible to say. I'd say though whoever wins the first fight the quickest will win. I don't think it will be a total skill factor as a condition factor being how it is a tournament. That could give crocop and wandy a big advantage. Maybe maybe not. But it won't matter who is fighting who if someone gases out it's over.

I hate to say it but I told you so.

IMO, Hunt won't ever beat any decent HW who isn't a striker until he seriously trains his ground or TD defense.

Barnett is 0-2 against crocop so as long as he doesn't fight him maybe he can win. Crocop just has his number.

Well Barnett i think still has a chance now if he fights cro cop, not a big one, but he's progressed in PRIDE as you can see, and he defeted a stand up fighter that beat Cro Cop, so i mean, he's got a chance to beat cro cop, but i mean at this point i really believe it's any man's game in this tournament.
