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.



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



Hmm a bit dyslexic today haha!

Makes no sense whatsoever..... Don't get me wrong I'm a big Manhoef fan, but how does a guy who weighs 100 lbs. less come in and KTFO a guy who has taken LHK's from Crocop in his prime? Or been in numerous wars with JLB without getting KTFO'd? Just doesn't make sense...

I'm never betting on NYE again

Thats for sure. I figured that he would give Hunt a beating, but I didn't think that he would knock him out.

That was like watching Hunt get run over by a Truck. The UFC needs to start throwing money at Manhoef and Overeem right away!

I've computed it in my head about a million times. I've watched the fight about 10 times. It still doesn't make sense.

First Nog gets KO'd by a guy who has rarely shown striking skills, and then Mark Hunt gets KO'd by a dude he outweighs by nearly 100 lbs!

The world is going to end. I swear to God. There was no way Hunt should have lost that fight. Again I ask- how do you go through wars with JLB and take CC LHK's without getting KTFO'd, and then a middlweight KO's you? How? How? How? Fix? Maybe? That's the only way it seems to make sense.

Again, though- all credit to Manhoef. Dude's a beast and definitely one of my favs. But c'mon.. KTFO'ing iron jawed Mark Hunt????

Were you watching a video that included the slo-mo replay? That was no fix, man. From the reverse angle, it looked like Manhoef's fist was about to come out the back of Hunt's head. Mark rushed in wildly and paid for it.

No I know, bro.. I was just throwing things out there because I am so shocked. The punches looked solid. I was just messing around mostly. Even watching the replays, though- it's still hard to believe he could not be KTFO by a solid Crocop LHK, yet a punch could KO him.

He did reach big time for those punches, too. I assume he just didn't fear Manhoef's power for the exact reasons that I'm stating here

It blew my mind too, I mean there was no reason to believe that Melvin had much of a chance at all. I was going to pick Hunt over LeBanner, and if I had remembered to update my pick, I would have picked him over Melvin easily.
