Le Banner is out of the fight against Hunt, i read on sherdog hes got the flu (not 100% sure though, it is sherdog), and Manhoef is replacing him in an open weight fight.

DREAM OFFICIAL SITE

K-1 OFFICIAL SITE

and here are the two sherdog links

LE BANNER FLU

MANHOEF REPLACEMENT

I wouldn't exactly call this news until there's confirmation...or unless someone can decipher Japanese on the DREAM website.

Sherdog = crap...no offense, but I personally don't believe anything I read there.

Thanks for the heads up, though, if this is true.

It says right there on the DREAM official site, if you scroll down, Manhoef vs. Hunt (there are even pictures for those of us who don't speak Japanese).

Oops. My apologies, Jimbo!

And dangit...this kinda kicks me in the balls for my parlay.

just as exciting of a matchup but manhoef will go down after he realizes he cannot knock hunt out, i could see melvin winning by decision though

Actually, it's not so much the site, itself (news, articles, etc.). It's the forums that are an absolute joke. I assumed (incorrectly, too) that this was pure speculation based on something read in the Sherdog forums.

I already sent an alert to the mods, so I'm guessing it will be fixed as soon as one of them (that can fix it) gets online.

cool.. Thanks It is really not effecting my pick.. I just want to make sure I get the right pick.

I won't be home from work until 10 or 11 est. And I can't make picks from my phone for some reason.

I hope I still have time to pick this one.

I think that Manhoef will batter Hunt.

I'm a little shocked so many are on the Manhoef train. He's a middle weight and Hunt is a 290lb wrecking machine. Hunt KO round 1. Remember Manhoef runs out of gas quick and Hunt isn't exactly known to go to sleep early.

I posted this is the mod section. It's not within my power to change it but hopefully someone will get to it quickly.

On that note- Hunt rd. 1 by absolute destruction.

I would like to add that sherdog.com actually holds itself to a very high standard of making sure it's news is legit. Many people confuse sherdog.net (the forums) with sherdog.com(the news and radio site).

People may not agree with some of the former writers and editors of sherdog (namely Josh Gross, who is now the main mma guy for sports illustrated) but to say that sherdog.com is not a good news site is false. They often are not the first to get the news out because, unlike the blogs, they do a lot of fact checking. When it is posted on sherdog.com you can be sure that the story has been checked out and it is legit.

I know Manhoef will be undersized, but lets remember that Le Banner is only three weeks removed from injury after his K-1 bout. This could possibly cause this fight to be a lot closer than most of us think.

hopefully all of you keep picking Melvin so that Hunt has good odds. this isn't going to be close. unless Melvin has perfected the flying armbar he has no chance.

i laugh at anyone who says that hunt will be "Destroyed" by anyone.

this is off mma-tvpro.com


K-1 Dynamite will air on MMA-TV at 7pm Japan time (5am ET). K-1 is airing on TBS from 7-11:24pm, in S. Korea on XTM at 7pm, and in full on SkyPerfect PPV at 12am (midnight). There is no live broadcast.

I dont know why so many of you think we are going to be able to pick this fight, or that it will be made available.
Its going close to 5 pm est.
there is no way this will be added, nor should it. Def. not fair to people who wont log in within 4 hours of the fight.



Still wish, this site would do K1 fights. Some good K1 fights. i.e Moussasi and Badr Hari/Overeem.

Is this Sherwood? thanks man your opinion is noted, I use Sherdog for the find finder alone or to see if Bushido 9 was before of after Pride 30.

Manhoef is replacing LeBanner, not Hunt A d'oh moment, perhaps?

Bum deal. When are we going to see LeBanner back in action. Melvin is very undersized in the match up. Hunt is a wrecking ball. I say Hunt TKO 1st

This is what post report notification's are for, but i guess your intentions were noble. However, we make no fight updates within 24 hours of the fight The one time we did, it caused a crapstorm. So it looks like this will be just one less fight
