Hunt is not the same striker he was in K-1. The last time he fought a very good striker, you saw what happened. Kongo has been getting blasted by everybody so I don't see that victory as fact that he would beat JDS.



Nobody is hating. We're simply stating that we think JDS would KO Hunt and supporting that argument with facts.

Btw, Cro Cop didn't land that kick as well as he could. They fought in K-1 as well and this is what happened when Mirko landed that kick properly.

A few more ground and pound punches and it would have been a KO loss.
It's almost 12:30am, and I feel like calling family right now and don't feel like responding too much, but what have you seen to make you suggest that JDS is an "expert in catching people cold"? The Werdum fight? Because while Werdum was certainly caught cold, I fail to see how JDS is an expert at catching people. If anything, that fight helps augment my point about people being more vulnerable in the beginning couple of minutes. I for one doubt Werdum would be caught again like that, for one thing.

Hunt was mostly worried about takedowns in that fight. Everyone was saying Rothwell was going to lay and pray Hunt. Hunt was able to stop the takedowns and take Rothwell out of his element. The fight actually played out entirely as I predicted it would (not that anyone wants to dig through a forum, but my prediction is at teamtakeover.forum-express.com . I received props for my spot-on pick, which was that Hunt would be able to stop Rothwell's sub-par wrestling and brawl his way to victory).

To be sure, Hunt hasn't done enough to earn a title shot. But on the basis of circumstances, he isn't the worst pick out there. And of course, styles make fights. Hunt could beat JDS. I wouldn't say so if he wasn't currently training for a fight, but because he is on the card and will presumably show up in shape based on having a full training camp, he has a good shot. If he was a last minute replacement who hadn't been in training, that would be one thing. But Hunt at his best, has the potential to win this fight.
