early reports are saying it will be PeeWee or Big Country

i want Hunt!




PeeWee? HUGE mismatch there. And honestly, I have no desire to see Nelson used as a punching bag for 3 rounds again. Mark Hunt would be the best possible replacement imo.

Agreed. Hunt is a better fight. Same durable chin as Nelson but with far superior striking, and in my opinion, he poses a MUCH greater risk to JDS than Nelson does. Plus odds are JDS is going to want to keep it standing so the fireworks are guaranteed. Book this fight now, damn it! The more I think about it the more excited I get!

I want Hunt vs JDS but i have a feeling that JDS would take to the ground after a few stand-up exchanges. Ill still pick Hunt though, I want him to win and then take the belt so bad.

WAR HUNT!!!!

If they can't get Hunt then Browne could be a good replacement.

If it wasn't so close to Fox 7, I'd say a little jumbling was in order:

JDS vs. Cormier

Hunt vs. Mir

Hunt vs JDS please..i had a big debate with someone a long time ago, bout who's striking is better..JDS or Hunt and i believe JDS has the much better striking and more importantly the cardio..and JDS knows he kept his hands to low against Cain and got caught..i'm all on board for JDS to fight Hunt and then Cain and win his title BACK!!!

now we just need Bigfoot to pull out of his fight and we can get Cain-JDS 3.

Not exactly warranted right now but neither is Cain - Bigfoot 2. At least we know JDS would have a shot.

As much as JDS and Reem being rescheduled is alright with me, it would have really been a treat for the hardcore fans to see Hunt get the fight.

Yeah, but Hunt is not too popular (among casual fans) and would actually stand a decent chance of beating JDS.
