I'm giving Hunt a 40/60 chance of winning. It's hard to out Schilt Semmy and Hunt is the anti Schilt. He doesn't care you you kick him in the teeth, he keeps coming, and I think Semmy will be shocked by that. I also look back at when Sefo dropped Semmy, Hunt is the same type of fighter with a bit better chin and possibly more power. So watch anyways

He could do it, but if his gas tank falters, Semy will kick him to a decision, and with Semy kicking to the chest all the time, its bound to hurt his cardio.

another thing Hunt has to worry about is the Knees, especially since he is giving up so much reach, he has to come in the pocket every time he is gonna hit schilt.

I predict somewhere between the 30th and 50th front kick Hunt accidentally punches Schilt in the nuts ,and loses by DQ.

I had a dream that Hunt deflected a front kick and hit Semmy with a HUUUUGE over hand right, putting him down and out. If it happens you know who to come to for predictions from now on Any chance we could get a K-1 league to make picks on

That would be Great for us K-1 Fans, but for the people who don't follow K-1 then It'll suck for them

Sorry bro. MMA only, as it wouldn't be fair becuase most fans don't know it at all. In K-1 I am sure you and MAstadon2 would smoke us all though

It's cool when I watch the links you guys post sometimes but thanks to ESPN I don't really get into it. The fights they show are mad BORING!!! When they show Cung Le it's cool but when I usually see it they only show the fight were Maurice Smith fights some other black guy with blonde hair and they check everything. Nothing lands clean.

By the sounds of things that black guy with blonde hair is Michael "The Black Sniper" Mcdonald

I like K-1 fighters and I love the K-1 style of fighting. It might be my favorite form of combat sport to watch.

Do I like K-1 as an organization? No, I don't. As a matter of fact I blame them for messing up what should be a great sport. I think they have shady matchmaking, promotion, fighter contracts and judging. And they emphasize size over talent far too much. Even more than I would like to see a major MMA promotional competitior for the UFC, I would love to see someone besides K-1 compete for world-class kickboxing talent and put on regular, serious events with experienced, ranked contenders fighting each other. There is certainly a way to do that without even touching current K-1 talent by simply promoting the much deeper, predominantly Thai,, talent pool at lower weights.

I blame them for things like, not having ppv's, not being active in enough tv markets, not producing dvd's outside of Japan, and not having more weight classes as well.
