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.

out of pure curiousity, why does everybody seem to dislike sherdog so much?.....i personally have never had a problem with theyre site, so i was wondering if im missing something?



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 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 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
