I have no interest in seeing hunt fight JDS.


Much rather see Mir fight him.

He's basically the dialectically opposing version of Frank Mir.
  • Mir's earned his shot, Hunt hasn't.
  • Hunt will last more than two minutes against JDS, Mir likely won't.
  • The longer the fight goes the less chance Hunt has in winning and the greater chance Mir has.
  • Hunt's never been given an opportunity like this in the UFC, Mir seems to get one every 18 months.

If we're just gonna hand out title shots based on whose exciting over whose most deserving what's the point of watching MMA? That completely devalues the sport aspect of it.

I could understand a situation like when Shields got a title shot over the winner of Fitch/Alves considering both were beat handily by GSP but to give Mark Hunt a title shot over Frank Mir would be laughable and nothing more. This isn't a popularity contest, it's a sport when Mark Hunt can beat someone actually good and in the top ten maybe then you can give him a title shot but the guy was submitted by SEAN MCCORKLE not even two years ago he is NOT worthy of fighting for a UFC belt.

Rothwell and Kongo were good enough wins for Cain to put him in a title eliminator. And you know we've seen guys get these title fights after dubious and nebulous situations. You take someone like Matt Serra who could in no way shape or form earn a title shot against GSP going through the rankings, but wins over Spratt, Carter, and Lytle and one lucky punch and new champion.

The problem with Frank Mir is like I said, can he survive two minutes against JDS, that really is how extreme this situation is.

Day 2

@SM33, the swearing felt necessary to emphasise the bad assness of Mark Hunt.

It's a hardcore movement. People who have followed the sport for a long time know how improbable his recent run is, and that there will never be a time when the move is justifiable like now.

Listen to Jordan Breen talk about it. It just captures the imagination if you’ve followed the sport for any amount of time. Meanwhile, Johnny-Come-Latelys have no idea of the back story. They just know who they’ve seen on past PPVs and do the, “Two is out, so three should be in” idiot arithmetic.

We demand narratives with historical significance, damnit! We want the opportunity for a fighter to achieve improbable yet transcendental greatness!

Rothwell and Kongo were good enough to earn Cain a title eliminator fight in 2009.

This is not 2009, Cain also had to fight and beat Big Nog for that title shot, he wouldn't have ever fought for the title if he didn't beat Big Nog who might have been 5 or 6 rankings wise when that fight happened.

Mark Hunt still doesn't have a top ten win and we still don't know how good his ground game truly is, his victory over Ben Rothwell didn't really say much considering Rothwell was in some of the worst condition I've ever seen a fighter in and turned into a punching bag for Rounds 2 and 3.

I don't really think Hunt deserves the shot, and I think he will probably get beat soundly by JDS, but it would be so cool if it somehow happened just because enough fans tweeted it.

It will be a sad sad day if Hunt gets a title shot after beating Tuscherer, Rothwell & Kongo. Mir is the only one that really makes sense out of the fighters on the card.

That's a very strange argument, both guys where coming off wins against cans, when Hunt won they were at the very least against UFC level competition.

Also Mir's three wins, CC, Nelson, and Nog not only were they over 35 years old but they are all one or two fights away from retirement either from the division, league, or sport. Bigger names yes, better wins....I don't know.

Mark Hunt has a better chance at beating Junior Dos Santos than Frank Mir, that is all people should be saying.

It's the same logic that gave a certain Karate Brazilian a title shot after one win and two loses.
