hunt will still wreck almost anyone in the ufc standing up. of course, nearly any wrestler and many other grappling based opponents will beat him unless they gas.
i hope he gets good match ups, but dana certainly won't feel feel obliged to do so.

i think it is for two fights, but not certain.

His record is misleading considering most of the guys he has lost to.

I say he has a chance to win 2/3 fights against lower tier guys, but I don't think he'll make and significant noise.

I agree. Glancing at his Elo scores, his opponents' aggregate rating - his "strength of schedule", so to speak - is 1887. I think that might be the highest in the sport, ever. By comparison, B.J. Penn's is 1874, GSP's is 1868, and Brock Lesnar's is 1844.
