The Push For Mark Hunt Vs Junior Dos Santos Continues.
mark hunt vs JDS would be fireworks and hunt has the power to pull it off
I think dos santos will win via submission.I think he will take hunt down and submit him But if he tries to stand with Mark Hunt JDS will be quickly KOed .Hunt’s striking level cannot be compared to JDS’s.JDS is a MMA fighter but hun t is a kickboxer and if JDS dares to stand he will see that he is a mediocre striker.But JDS is a very good MMA fighter and will take down hunt and submit him He will not even try to stand with Hunt, he knows he can’t win like that.
Ridiculous… Why would people campaign for that ? He’s way past his prime and he ain’t no threat to JDS at all, even on the feet. He would get KOed in the 1rst just like he got KOed by Melvin Manhoef. I love Hunt but this whole thing is ridiculous. Give Overeem Mir or Werdum, even though i still have hope for Overeem to get liscenced and somehow get a clean B sample.
hehe a little bit dramatic but hunt is really a force. well it all depends who he will fight against. I think in a striking match he could beat all of the hw but he could be in a lot of trouble with cain because cain is on another wrestling level than rothwell or tuchscherrer and even though he improved his takedown defense it would be a hard fight…well against jds…mhh always difficult but of course if hunt touches you then your going down
Fluidity, wise post.
how the hell is this fight worth thinking about.
Hunt isnt anywhere near a title shot, and he is way way down the chain of been able to compete with JDS.
Mark can punch yes, he can take a punch yes… AND WHAT….
come on marku hantu!!!!!!
LOL @ the bunch of geeks saying Kongo will win because of his muscle and physic.
Hunt has been looking good lately, but I don’t think he is in proper shape for it. He needs to shed a few pounds and get some more cardio. Once he has that, it will be his best chance at winning a title. Frank Mir looks like the person to take on JDS at the moment. Cain vs Bigfoot, and Nelson can get someone else, maybe hunt.
hello fluidity I am partially right with you.Hunt is not legitimate to be a challenger and it is true that he’s way past his prime But to say that JDS would be no threat on the feet is ridiculous.If JDS tries or dares to stand with hunt he will be quickly KOed.JDS is no boxer or kickboxer he is a MMA fighter and the striking level in MMA is mediocre which is normal since striking is just a part of the game But stop believing that JDS is the ultimate striker;compared to the elite kickboxers JDS is c-level.
versus JDS? WHY? dont you guys means versus Pat Barry? who in their right mind would put Hunt up against the Champion? For one, he hasn’t nearly finished climbing up the ladder and there’s other people who deserve it much more and secondly, his record is horrible if he lost that fight his career would be over…let him get at least 5 more wins under him before that JDS talk continues.
I dont understand this, guy was in a big losing streak. Comes in and ko’s a couple nobodies and all of a sudden he gets a title shot? Win bs some decent competition first. JDS woul ko him in minutes.
Don’t see this happening. Mark Hunt reminds me of the boxer also from Australia, David Tua. This match would look a lot like when Tua tried to take on Chris Byrd for the title and got embarrassed only I think JDS would finish it.
If Mark Hunt KOed JDS and became the HW Champ that would be the biggest upset in history… and it can happen too!
Come on. Look at Hunt’s MMA record. He lost 6 fights in a row, all in the first round from 2006 through 2010. Sure, he has won his last 3 fights but the only reason he would be considered as a contender is that all of the other good heavyweights are booked.
hunt always has a punchers chance…
this guy has super heavy hands that would knock out any man, I would say he has the heaviest hands in the ufc heavy weights. but i don`t think he has the skill or fast enough for Dos santos.
while he has yet to earn it, i would be just as excited to see hunt fight jds as any other hw. the only fight i want more is jds v. reem. i also think hunt has an INCREDIBLE punchers chance against everyone in the division. If the stars align he has enough standup skill to win a hw title. if he gets taken down hes f’ed
It would be great if it was a kickboxing match BUT…… it is MMA and Mark Hunt is 1% of Junior Dos Santos.
LOL@the guy saying Kongo has the better muscle structure. what the F*** does that have to do with anything you douche
Hunt will get hunted if he goes against JDS
this guy’s fat and slow. Sure, lots of power, but that’s very one-dimensional
Africaunity, because you have seen JDS’s great ground skills and ground game right?
No Way! Hunt as much as I have enjoyed him over the years is in no way ready for Junior.
Mark Hunt will kill Dos Santos in Stand up…….no doubt about it at all….
Hunt is a warrior and a legend!! Anyone who says he doesn’t deserve this shot obviously hasn’t been watching the sport very long. Gotta love this guy, he could definitely take JDS out! Make it happen DANA!!! and for all you dumb ass newbie mma fans, stop hatin on this guy and shut the F*** up!! You have no clue what you’re talking about, this guy would destroy Overeem!
MMAgiantsulva JDS is first a BJJ practicioner.He is a black belt in BJJ.But he uses mainly his striking
I like mark hunt, but no no no. Mark is not entitled to a title shot yet.
OK,from what I hear thereem was not licensed to fight yet,ie; he should not have been tested,or there was no reason since he was not licensed in the US to fight(Just ran up)and that he filed for a license to fight on the following day….so the long and short of the story is he will go to the hearing on the 24th,say he wasnt supposed to be tested,give a note from his Dr.saying some sort of BS,re-take the test and piss clean…fights still on folks.
@wcoastassassin David “Tuamanator” Tua was born in Samoa and fought out of South Auckland,New Zealand not Australia…Also Mark Hunt is from New Zealand.
Am I the only one excited about this?! Mark Hunt is EXPONENTIALLY fun to watch. “But Kounta..”. But what? He is a WORLD ELITE striker and has been for over a decade. Yes, he doesn’t have the greatest BJJ defense in the world, so what. He got touched by Manhoef, so?! Melvin could KO a cow. All of you talkin’ $hit on here are NO DIFFERENT than those geeks in the vid, making your winning picks. Who cares what you think!? Not me, nor the mature, educated MMA fanbase. We want to see a WWWAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!! Pure & simple.♠
comparing the james braddock story to mark hunts “story” is disrespectful to say the least…….
I don’t think mark can beat Jr right now. But I would rather see him fight frank. That would be a good fight!
@ Fluidity…..dumb post man. You think Hunt will get knocked out because he was knocked out once in his entire career…talk about knowing nothing about combat sports. So how do you think Overeem would do? He was knocked out over 8 times including MMA and K-1.
By the way, Manhoef could knock out JDS as well. I’m not saying Hunt would win, but if the fight stays standing he has a good chance of winning.
I find it hilarious so many pepole thrive for predictions. Ever notice how the majority of UFC or pro fighters, when asked, are quite reluctant to give predictions? Maybe because they understand that MMA math doesn’t hold true enough to actually use it, lol. Anyone who thinks Mark Hunt would definitely lose against JDS is very ignorant.
If Hunt was younger I would say it would be a good fight. JDS is young, too slick and strong, and very well experienced…. JDS can beat him standing or on the ground …it owuld take really a lucky shot from Hunt…He has been KOd in MMA before by crappier fighters…JDS would own him.
Hunt’s striking is on another level.. He should ko Dos Santos in a striking war.
Yet Overeem’s striking is even more dangerous,I am surprised by people not having mentioned that.
acualy from New Zealand
to it’s feet ? or its ?
I agree Hunt has really slim chances of winning in an MMa match.But you guys saying JDS would own him standing up need to have a wake up call.Mark won the K-1 championship.If JDS fights him in kickboxing,he is getting KOed.Have a little repsect the guy has a poor MMA record because he used to only know kickboxing and he still managed to win some MMA fights with only kicboxing in his arsenal,that’s really impressive.Now he’s getting better at grappling everyday.Please do some research on Hunt before saying he would get owned standing up.
But overreem was just on hormone replacement therapy….
@SEAN_VANCE – Gotta disagree dude. Hunt was KO’d once by Manhoef, sure, but look at the list of other “crappier” fighters that beat him via submission…his biggest flaw:
Alistair Overeem Fedor Emelianenko Josh Barnett Gegard Mousasi another huge, submission guy Sean McDORKle & Judo Gold Medalist Hidehiko Yoshida
Before his 3 Octagon wins, and before that horrendous 6 fight slide. Peep these “W”s:
Cro Cop Wandy Dan Bobish TK and Yosuke Nishijima, a professional boxer with a 24-2-1 record and a sh!tload of heart. Dudes first MMA fight…Mark Hunt. First K1 opponent…Peter Aerts.
GIVE HUNT A SHOT!!!!!! ♠
Nobody wants to see this fight.
Notice how every single Mark Hunt hater has not posted their pick to fight JDs. You cocksuckers are something else, lmfao. Hunt has had some insane fights and wins even before ufc, you faggots. UFC isnt the only production. f***** morons, lmfao.
“Fans” now days have no faith in fighters. It’s either they are champ or they are not s***. Sad, because fans should be happy to be able to witness some of these fights happen. Especially when an under dog is fighting. Don’t watch it is all that can be said, fake ass fans.
funny how on other forums people keep dropping Verdumes name after he got koed and looked like s*** in SF
Six of seven of Hunt’s losses came from submission. If Hunt did fight and beat JDS the heavyweight division would lose all credibility. Would he be taken seriously as a legitimate champ? Or will everyone simply sit back and wait until Hunt has to defend his title against someone with a legit ground game? This should all be moot if JDS can alter his gameplan to compensate for Hunt’s striking ability, like a true MMA champ should be able to do. Its just too bad that the heavyweight division is still so thinned out that the UFC may have to resort to picking this guy as a replacement opponent.
First of all, this video is way too long and boring. Secondly, it may actually be a bad match up for Junior, and Hunt could actually get the win. Lastly, do you really think that Hunt deserves a title shot right now? Ahead of guys like Frank Mir? The answer is NO, not even close! I’d rather see them mix up the card a little if anything, have Mir fight Dos Santos, maybe Cain vs Big Foot, etc. No way Hunt should step in and get a title fight…
If you want to be reasonable: Hunt is a tough m***********, but he obviously shouldn’t be getting a title shot at this moment. However, Brock Lesnar got a shot being 2-1 (1-1 in the UFC) with no other professional fight record to speak of. Captain America got his title shot against Timmmmmbbbbbbeeeeeerrrrr coming out of a loss to Chuck Lidell at LHW. So, it wouldn’t be incredible if Hunt, a very seasoned, but much younger than Couture and Hendo, top-notch, world-class striker on a 3 win streak to get a shot. Sure Mir deserves more, but he already had many title shots and, on paper at least, he doesn’t match up well against Cigano.
Now, if you really like fighting: I am with KouNTa KuLCHa all the way! Just bring Hunt in and let one of the most exciting fights in HW division take place. Winning or losing, Hunt would make it epic. Also, as Junior likes to keep his fights standing, Hunt could really have a chance…
He’s in the conversation because they are short on options. They booked most of the HW already to fight on this card. If Mir/Cain goes ahead there really is no-one else, its that simple. My pick Overeem OR Hunt will fight. Prolly Hunt. YEEEERRRR!!!
Ok, how in the F*** does Hunt deserve to get a title shot before Mir? Where’s all this suddenly coming from? He’s not even good enough to be on the card and now he should get a title shot? Noway.
Hunt is a calculated puncher while jds is a wild swinger with good technique. Hunt has a tremendous chance standing. Mir is gonna get wasted his only chance is after he is rocked and near death JDS makes a mistake. Overeem is gonna fight anyway cheating or not Dana has an angle thats why they are pushing for him to be licensed. I think Hunt vs JDS is a great fight screw you haters that just starting wacthing mma 2 years ago.
everybody wantto see this fight
make that happen.
DW has stated on many occasions that it’s not who’s next in line necessarily. It’s a business after all…
epic video.i hope hunt gets the shot.he deserves it.
@ironfist, i find it odd how you give hunt a better than punchers chance considering his shitty mma record, yet you completely dismiss a proven top heavywieght and former champ in frank mir. Dont forget, striking (punches) is only 1 part of mma. Any heavywieght can knock out any other at any time. Cro cop and congo were both supposed to outstrike mir. JDS might have good striking, but lets not forget, its mma striking. I mean hes no ali or foreman.
Mark Hunt is gatekeeper, a good fighter decent hands with good timing, great chin and spirit but he doesn’t have the well rounded game, even on the feet he just walks right into shots bc he has a welterweights range or and not enough hand speed necessary to compete with the best heavyweights and his ground game is junk he gets tapped more than tito’s wife, he lost to McCorkle nuf said
Someone explain to me HOW hunt deserves a title shot….no one has been able to explain it to me.
Hunt has more punch power that Dos Santos……. really? If Hunt stood with Dos santos he would be knocked out. Maybe Hunt v Carwin would be a better match up and i think Hunt would lose that.
^ Because there’s no one else you f****** C***. Think about it.
dude jds is awesome with good boxing and fast hands. him vs hunt would be good fight in the standup but i think hunt would eventually catch him if jds keeps it standing the whole time. I love jds but tired of ppl thinking he would easily beat hunt and especially overeem. Overeem has beat some of the best strikers in the world in k1. he would ko junior no doubt.
@gingjok…funny thing, “f****** C***” is the same pet name i call your mom. anyway, by your logic of “theres no one else”, then they should just let jds fight tank abbot because as you say ‘theres no one else”. if you cleaned the mark hunt jizz out of your eyes, you you see that i asked why he “deserves” a title shot. becuase theres no one else is not only friggin stupid, but it doesnt answer the deserves portion of my question….
@wcoastassasin, think some1 pointed it out but hunt is from new zealand not australia, so is david tua, and tui got embarrassed by lenox lewis for the world title, your facts are outa wack man. Anyway im from new zealand so screw it, im rallying for mark hunt
Uh Crocop knocked out Mark Hunt with a high kick, so with stringman logic, if Mark can KO JDS then Crocop could knockout Mark and become champ. Of course, I’m not a f****** idiot, so I know that Mark Hunt wouldn’t stand a chance and to give him a title shot now would be ridiculous and undeserved.
The moral of this video is never trust the fight predictions of a little f@g with a King of popshots/Micheal Jackson poster on his wall
