It's extra funny because he was told in advance that there was going to be random drug tests, and he still decided to let himself get popped.

Mark Hunt is one of my longtime favorite fighters, and he is from New Zealand. But I don't think he quite deserves a title shot just yet. Though I would LOVE it if they gave him one. K1 FTW!!

I think Hunt has earned it more than if Cain got it. But again, IMO.

And I've begun to hate rematches lately.

I'd pick Hunt to win, in the Bizzaro world where this fight would actually happen.

I'd much rather see this guy fight for the title if AO is forced to back out. He has earned it

They gave Marquardt like 6 weeks of time to get his levels to normal so why cant they do the same for Overeem?

Mir is more deserving, but Hunt would make a far more competitive fight.

Taking a guess here, maybe for Nate is was a different Athletic Commission, Nate's issue was with Pennsylvania's AC.

The crazy part is that Sonnen's was 16.9:1, 6.9 higher then Overeem's



From what I read the email stated that he was GREATER than 10:1. They didn't specifically say 10:1. Greater than.

Mir also recovered and broke Nog's arm. Struve gets dropped in every single (but somehow didnt vs Herman). I don't know if Hunt will make it a more competitive fight. JDS can surprise TD Hunt and sub him 40 seconds later. imo Mir gives the more competitve fight but Hunt probably will be more exciting

Hendo is looking for a title shot, so slide him right in
