Unless Hunt starts to be KO'ed left and right.

Have to go with Melvin, not only did he as a MW KO a SHW but he KO'ed a guy who was thought to not be able to be KO'ed.

While Alistair's win is great I'm not incredibly impressed. He has good striking and fought in K-1 before and the Hari that was fighting wasn't the normal Hari. He didn't show any type of aggression which is what Hari's style is. He was flat and you could tell that he hadn't trained much for the fight because he wasn't expecting to fight and his next fight isn't until February where as Overeem had been training since he thought he would be fighting Cro Cop.

Manhoef, without a doubt. Hunt has walked straight through a Mirko head kick but was knocked out by this dudes left hook, straight right combo. That is horribly frightening.

I picked Overeem mostly because he hadn't been beaten all year. I mean he lost to Remy but that was just him being a crazy asshole.

Overeem is the first guy to beat Badr since 06 besides Remy that's insane.

Now that's taking nothing away from Manhoef who is a MW and knocked out a guy no one can knock out. However Manhoef is more proven in K-1 then Overeem and Badr is a better fighter then Hunt so that's the way I'm going.

The crazy part is he was backing up when he knocked Hunt out, and the even crazier part is he actually knocked Hunt off his feet with that punch. ****ing nuts, I never thought I'd see Mark Hunt out cold.
