Hunt's record sucks, but he has fought straight killers. And Kongo/Rothwell might be better than anyone Struve has ever beat.



Is it hype? Or is it playful cheering? Do people really think #RallyForHunt is very serious? People are just fans. I have never seen anyone here or anywhere claim Hunt as a top 5 or even that he could be top 5. I have seen maybe a couple people put him at the back end of their top 10.

Perhaps I have missed it. I am a fan. And I would love to see him KO Overeem. But I thought most Hunt talk is out of fandom and Samoan Atomic Butt Drops.

Or perhaps the playfulness of it all goes right over some people's heads.
You could be right Ive never really paid that much attention to most of the conversations as I wouldn't call myself a Hunt fan. I dont dislike him or anything, he's just not one of my favourites.

Mark Hunt is great. He has the perfect mindset and is just a fun guy. He is a fun guy to follow on twitter too because when he is on he will respond. I joked with him on twitter about fighting Fedor at the UFC event that ended up getting cancelled. He said he would love to fight Fedor again.
Nice guy, fun to watch fight, hard not to root for him.

I don't mind Struve, he is still really young and improving. Not sure if he will ever make that next big jump but he has plenty of time to try.

Twitter seems perfect for Mark Hunt also. He never says more than a few words so no adjustment needed.

Heh, such a comical height difference. Go Mark Hunt!

Either Struve gets KO'd or Hunt sub'd.
