Hunt's patchy and almost terrible mma record until recently vs JDS' stellar mma record and relative consistency make this an upset on the books easily, hence the odds. Plus there is the occasional wrestling showcased by JDS and on paper his BJJ belt.

We know style wise this can be a close match on the feet though. And going by where they both are at this point in their lives and careers, I give Hunt the edge.

Ilir Latifi wrestle****s Gegard Mousasi. Only thing I can find on him says he lacks confidence in his hands and relies to much on his wrestling, sounds like a winning game plan here especially against a guy who was training to fight a long lanky striker.

Hmmm that is an interesting thought. The only guy Moose has lost to recently was a wrestler, too. Wonder when the lines will start popping for the fight.

And the fact that Mo even horribly gassed was easily taking Gegard down lays heavy when you examine the fight. Gegard would have been working hard on striking with lanky guys not on defending the take down, he was prepared for a wrestler against Mo he isn't here it's a big change for him. if I knew if the replacement was preparing for a fight I could possibly bet on him.

That result could upset some people, specially Werdum's fans or those wishing new challengers for the belt in Werdum. That being said, Big Nog winning would be far from a surprising result. This fight is 50/50, I would say, but with a good edge for Big Nog's hands.

Top three big upset picks

1. Couture over Pearson Strikeforce midcard defeats UFC midcard. Couture is bigger with better wrestling and a better chin and Pearson is scrappy but scrappy doesn't win fights consistently.
2. Josh Samman over Urijah Hall Hall has the striking but lacks the grappling. I feel like the UFC has been protecting Hall so he hasn't got layed and prayed, Josh could do it.
3. Ilir Latifi over Gregard Mousassi because you never bet against a wrestler, especially not against a guy that Keith Jardine took down five times in a round.

Gegard improves his wrestling a lot in his fight against OSP.

I feel like with wrestling when you aren't a wrestler it's something that you need to dedicate the camp towards. You look at someone like Rick Story who beats Johny Hendricks and then loses to Charlie Brenneman.

Both of these of have merit, Gegard has improved his wrestling but that was a fight he had a camp to prepare for a wrestler something he doesn't have here.
