He keeps winning fights. Against fighters that people like you claim he has no chance of beating. You can't deny a man better fights or hold him down because one or two guys on the internet claim he's a 'shitty fighter'.

Why are people clamouring for Mark Hunt? Because he keeps on winning. Duh.

As for Dana's decision, bad call. The only way this card was ever going to do well was because JDS vs. Overeem was bolstering it. As fun as the rematch will no doubt be, people aren't kicking down the doors to see Silva vs. Velasquez II. Hunt vs. JDS would have helped sell this card the same way Overeem vs. JDS would have... I don't often question the UFC's judgment but this wasn't a smart move.

I'd be interested in seeing Hunt vs JDS.

I think I actually prefer it to JDS vs Reem as I dont wanna see Reem KO'd again.

I would love to see Reem knocked out again so I disagree. I can't stand Reem. There isn't a more obvious cheater in all of MMA and he is a cocky bastard to go with it.

I think they'll put it on the Silva/Weidman PPV if possible. If that card isn't strong, they will be disappointed with the buyrate.

I really hope Junior fights soon, really wanna see his game now that he's lost and see the improvements he's made. I think he lays a hurting in Overeem and don't even get me started in Mark 'KOed by a Middleweight' Hunt.

Exactly, Silva is a big draw with the right opponent..

July 6 is also International Fight Week and the fan expo, that weekend and Superbowl in Vegas are always fights to travel for (sadly I have to skip this years)

He has the right opponent.

People are just uneducated about Weidman.

Besides shouldn't people be lining up left right and center to see the 'GOAT' work his magic? Because when he gets put down on July 6th he'll never fight again.

Don't act like Mark Hunt was KOed by CB Dolloway. Melvin Manhoef could KO just about any fighter at any weight class if he connected cleanly. And it's not even as though Hunt had a 10 inch reach advantage.

Yay I am actually happy about this! Been waiting way too long to see this fight slip down the drain. Who knows what could happen if they give them both new opponents. If one of them wins and one of them loses it might no longer make sense to ever make the match. This is gonna be a great fight!

That's pretty funny man. Manhoef is one of the hardest hitters in any weight class. Could knock out any HW in the UFC today with a clean shot.
