in a no.1 conteder bout for Mark Hunts INEVITABLE UFC HW BELT!!!!!!!

**** YEAH!! MARK HUNT!!!!"



I think Tushcherer (sp), Rothwell, and Kongo
is as impressive as Cro Cop, Nelson, and Nog
, or at least close.

Plus, Mir got a shot two years ago after blasting Kongo, so why shouldn’t Hunt?
lol, No, just...no.

Chris Tuchscherer was horrible and mostly a punching bag, even a severely faded Cro Cop would pound him into nothing.

Ben Rothwell and Roy Nelson are probably even.

But Kongo? Kongo on the same level as Big Nog? Kongo has always been mediocre and Big Nog just knocked out a top ten Heavyweight.

Have people seriously forgot that Mark Hunt got finished by Sean McCorkle not even two years ago?

People were claiming Nog was done and finished after the Cain fight, hell people were saying that after the first Mir fight, yet all of a sudden he beats Brendan Schaub and he's great again?

Styles make fights and Mark Hunt vs JDS is a much more interesting stylistic match up than Mir vs JDS, especially when you take into consideration that Frank Mir was put on his ass from a big nog jab.



Most MMA communites are really getting behind Hunt/JDS, sucks that this one doesn't.

Hey I agree it's a fun fight. And after watching Brock bounce off of Overeem I wonder just how strong is Mark Hunt??




....but it aint gonna happen. so we're talking about the match that will.

Given that twitter is exploding with everyone tweeting Hunt/JDS to Dana, there's a real possibility it could happen and I'm gong to put all my effort into supporting it.

Again, styles make fights. What does Mir offer JDS that he hasn't seen time and time again in the past? He's faced the elite BJJ fighter with decent stand up in Werdum and Roy Nelson and he blitzed them both. Mir has terrible take downs, a dodgy chin, decent stand up (some times....) and great submissions.

Junior was originally preparing to face a world class striker and a K1 GP champ. Mark Hunt is an apt replacement. He is a world class striker with excellent hands, the strength of a bear and an epic chin. It makes so much sense.

JDS needs to KO Mir clean, if he follows him to the ground, Mir will take a limb. I see Mir even playing a little possum and dropping at the first tap just to see if he can get JDS to be overconfident and leap into his guard. If not, hopefully Mir will be smart enough to jump guard, because theres no way he'll be able to take him down otherwise. Its an interesting match up honestly, Mir is the most dangerous jitsu HW in the world and you can never count him out.

Hopefully Cain puts a huge beating on the Ortiz style head of Silva.

I've been a big fan of Frank from way back when the first fight I ever saw live on ppv was Mir v Tank. Frank was a LOT quicker in those days, and a hell of a lot lighter on his feet. His technique in boxing may have improved but he has slowed to a very pedestrian and plodding pace, in comparison to all those years ago, and I can see only one result. JDS KO/TKO. It's the worst possible fight for Mir.

LOL at who ever it was on the first page that said Meathead has good TDD. I'd say its his biggest weakness. The fight against Nelson is gonna be a good one though, because they both have iron chins, and Meathead is a LOT quicker and should pepper Nelson with a lot of shots. It will either be an all out stand up war with Meathead winning, or it will simply become the classic striker v wrestler encounter, as Roy will look to avoid Mitrione's strengths and go for his major weakness - defensive wrestling.

I think and obviously hope that Matt will light him up though.

It's worth a shot. The fans demanded Nick Diaz, they got it. The fans demanded Overeem, they got it.

Don't underestimate the power of twitter my friend.

Get tweeting people.

It's simply not appropriate to give him a shot at this point in his career.

He's won three in a row against mid-tier guys; he lost, what- six in a row before that? Being subbed five of those six?
And he hasn't beaten a top ten- heck, even a (arguably) top 20 guy, yet.

While I agree it would be a fun(ny) fight, IMO it's just realistic.

Dan Hardy got a title shot against GSP for beating Mike Swick. Any thing in this game is possible.

I'll support Hunt/JDS until the bitter end.
