JDS should take this via either grappling or speed/youth but I'll be rooting for Hunt & he has a legit chance if it stays standing.

JDS should have this one but I wouldn't be surprised if Hunt KO's JDS instead. Really looking forward to this fight.

What makes Mark Hunt's striking so good is his ability to fool opponents into doing what he wants them to do, then crack them in the head with a well-timed punch. The genius is in the setups, he'll either make opponents brawl with him in which case they'll lose the test of chins, or he'll suck them into a position where he can crack them with a clean counter. This is something that very few fighters understand, JDS is another one who does get it (hit body, hands go down, hit'em in the head for the KO).

Oh, and Hunt does have pretty fast hands and heavy punches.

Hunt stands no chance. He will gas by the end of the 1st and get put away in the 2nd.

SICK FIGHT!!!

Hunt can KO even in the 3rd round. Logic says JDS wins. JDS is the better athlete and has a better chin. Even though Hunts iron chin is not far behind. I can't wait for this fight. I'll be happy with either result.

People discounting Hunts striking ability is just foolish. Hunt was a beast in K-1. Hunt will KO JDS

Hopefully JDS realizes this is an MMA fight not a kickboxing match and just slams Hunt to the ground and beats his face in then subs him. He needs to be focused on getting back to the title not proving something about standing with hunt.

This needs to happen for sure. He would completely demolish Hunt on the ground, striking is the only place where he could potentially lose this fight.
