Like them both equally, definitely think Hunt is deserving of a top 5 opponent though I think JDS takes both matchups comfortably

I want both. And non-existent God willing, we'll get to see both in time.

My one problem with JDS vs. Hunt is that one would have to lose. That can be a tough pill when you love both fighters, as amazing as the fight would no doubt be.

I could handle seeing Overeem KOed again. I think he's up to something with this 'injury'.

I'm all for Hunt marching on to the title shot, but I think he's 2 fights away from that, which means 1 fight away from JDS level competition.

I'd rather see Reem tested at that level first.

Hunt vs. JDS is the better fight.

I wanted to see Overeem in there just to watch him get KO'd again. It is becoming fact that Overeem was overrated. A lot of people said that long ago, a lot of people defended Overeem to no end. It is a lot different when he doesn't have big puffy gloves to hide his chin. Or going against battered fighters from previous rounds of K-1 tourney. Overeem is highly overrated. His striking included.

Honestly I think Hunt can beat JDS if they stand the whole way. JDS's punches seem to lose power the longer the fight goes. Hunt has a hell of a chin and probably more power in his hands. I wouldn't be surprised if JDS took him down and sub'd him. Would sort of ruin it, but I wouldn't blame JDS. Hunt is the best striker at HW. Believe that.

JDS vs Overeem. Been waiting way too long for that fight. Love me some Hunt though.

Hunt/JDS, only because Hunt has a better chin. I see Overeem getting finished quickly where as Hunt would probably go the distance.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I agree 100% with every word here. Every single word.

i think Hunt has a lot more heart than Overeem and would provide a much more exciting fight. I think Overeem would wilt once he gets hit by JDS

much rather see Hunt vs JDS.. hunt is a better striker and is much more durable than overrated... plus this fight has very little chance of going to the ground with either opponent and that is where Mark Hunt shines.... Reem would just get KO'd and sent to the under cards.

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.
