I don't ever do this. But. This is a hard pick for me
I like hunt a lot but given 5 straight losses. Only thing is he cut the fat
Looks in great shape. Will he gass out??? Or will the cut make him faster and quick

I don't look at the guy who lost 5 straight when I see him I see the guy who beat wanderli silva, almost took out fedor.

I don't like playing favorite game
Who do you guys have winning this fight??

I'm inclined to go with Mark Hunt due to his recent re-dedication to the sport. He seems hungry and looks to be in shape. I'm taking him by a first round tko.

Anyone have a recent pic of Hunt? I'd like to see how much he's trimmed down...

I don't know much about Mccorkle, but took him in the fight either way, I just think Hunt has unfortunatley gotten old fast... I'm a huge Mark Hunt fan as a kickboxer but have never seen his as a great martial artist... his big wins were in standup affairs with CroCop and Wand, and he did have a good showing against Fedor.

Like I said I don't know much about Mccorkle, if he decides to stand I think Hunt will take him... If he takes it to the ground, I'm curious as to what Hunt has learned, but don't have much faith in him advancing his groundgame too much, kinda the old dog new tricks thing...

lol... Sooo... I guess all that doesn't help you too much now that I think about it, sorry


(Really really hope that Hunt knocks him out and makes a run, but am not sure how much fight he's got left in him)

He's in the middle if you can't recognize him. And I'm pretty sure that's a L'il Dice shirt he has on, which makes me want him to win even more!

The reach is going to be huge for mccorkle, but i dont think his ground game is anywhere near phenomenal. From what ive seen, he may not outposition hunt on the ground. He seems content to sit in half guard and gnp.
