Honus Joglund wrote:Must either want more money or more time. After Struve he asked for a top-five opponent and then he asked for the JDS fight on twitter after Reem dropped out. If he really doesn't want JDS then his other options in the official top-five are an Olympic wrestler and three BJJ black belts. Doesn't make sense.
If Hunt/JDS doesn't happen I want Hunt/Nelson in the fattest, most slobberknockeriest tilt since Tank/Ferrozzo I.
Dana better tread lightly.

Hopefully it is JDS. That makes a lot of sense, fun fight, and gets Junior back on track. Nelson would just take that fight to the ground.
aptar wrote:I can hear Joe Rogan now. "Mark Hunt is, without a doubt, the best striker Junior Dos Santos has ever fought. With Hunt's explosive knockout power, Junior will have to be very careful on his feet, and if it goes to the ground, Hunt has a very underrated ground game. This is going to be, without question, one hell of a fight."
Honus Joglund wrote:Well, the fight is official now and I think Hunt has a better than average chance against JDS for a couple reasons:
- he has the greatest chin in MMA history
- big fat Samoan power
Some people seem to think it's going to be JDS/Nelson II, but I don't. Nelson admitted after the Mitrione fight that he had never worked on striking until 2009, about a year before that fight. He basically covered up and threw nothing but haymakers. Hunt is obviously a legit stand up fighter. K-1 WGP champ and what not. Hunt can put together a combo and has heavy, heavy kicks available if Junior doesn't look interested in going to the ground.
I give Hunt has as good of a chance in this fight as Reem had, or any other striker in the HW division.

He's a "puck posession" guy.
For whatever that's worth, I mean I always found the Wings boring to watch.
