Good for us because he'll be making a fool out of himself for comedic purposes. Bad for him because he'll be making a fool out of himself for comedic purposes. Then again, Bob Sapp has done it to great fanfare, even Kevin Randleman's done it.

What the.....?

What is this guy thinking. He took Wanderlei the distance, took a head kick from Cro Cop and kept coming, and almost beat Fedor.

Big disappointment.

Can't make weight, I was hoping he'd sign with K-1 or M-1...

That is messed up to hear that he's going to pro wrestling.He was a really good fighter. He could've done good in the UFC.You know what's really funny? We have MMA guys going to wrestling and wrestlers coming to MMA. Here,I have an idea. We could be like the NFL and trade Lessner for Hunt.

What a big loss for the MMA world. Hunt was a game heavyweight always down to throw big shots and take big shots. We'll miss out on some potentially great matchups now

(wight shouldnt be an issue with m-1 and k-1)

You guys make it seem like his fighting career is done. There have been countless fighters who have done pro wrestling and and then back to fighting. Bob Sapp is a great example, as well as Josh Barnett. Its a great way to maintain your income when not fighting.

Screw that, I want to see him fight Butterbean like he was supposed to. Its such a paradox, because I can't imagine the fight leaving the first round, but I also can't imagine either guy being knocked out. I have to see it!

Isin't Hustle like a parody of pro-wrestling or something? I meen yeah they do the hard stunts and all but I think i recall seeing something on youtube... when crocop got invited to make an appearance, this guy in a pink ballet tutu or something was dancing in the ring before getting "head kicked" by crocop. I always thought of hustle as a comedy or something like it, bad for Hunt IMO

I don't hate on people for providing for their families. It's funny how only one of you even knew Hunt was the 2001 K-1 World GP champion.

Yeah so dissapointing a former K-1 GP champ is doing this. I think this is a pit stop and he'll sign with M-1, WVR or HDnet.

I don't think anyone in here is disparaging him, we're just saying that it's really disappointing to see such a great fighter move out of the sport, even if it is only temporary. If this is what he has to do to make money that's fine, but it's still really disappointing.
