    I feel like when talking about fights we have a lot of the same views, but when you get off on the Dana hate you really lose me. Did I read you say above that the UFC is protecting JDS from Hunt??? please tell me I misinterpreted that.

    im confused, if Hunt did indeed ask the UFC to pay up to fill in on 11 weeks notice and the UFC said no, then Hunt said im not taking the fight.

    So then he did turn down the fight correct?

    I know we dont know both sides of the story (or really any sides of the story outside of a few tweets) but this sounds very similar to Machida wanting that Anderson Silva money to take a fight on short notice...

    Just the fact we're having this conversation at this moment utterly amazes me. It's 2013, and we're talking about Mark Hunt being a win away from a UFC title shot. Mark. Hunt. Utterly fuckin amazing.

    ...I don't think we'll see any statements from him about lack of training time or being injured if he loses. He's epitomizes that old school fighter mentality that I love. I wish there were certain champions--note the plural--who could have Hunt's heart in addition to their world-class skill levels. That would be the very best thing to ever happen to MMA, in my opinion.

    11 weeks from your last fight is pretty rough for a HW coming off a fight into the 3rd (I think) round. He doesn't usually look beat up, but I'm sure Hunt has some real damage.

    Honest, given that and how bad his cardio looked post injury, I'm not sure I want to see this fight so soon. But Hunt is a tough bastard and doesn't care

    I think when it comes on the heels of a grueling, KOTN performance. I wouldn't be surprised to see Hunt gotten at least a 30 days suspension which would still limit his training time on the short end of things.

    "I'm training to fight in May and expect that to happen. No matter the opponent, who was injured now could get hurt again later. Waiting is wasting time."
