Who the hell can beat this monster?
Hunt is big and strong and tough as hell. I think standing, he could hang with Fedor. But Fedor's strike and then takedown style would definately put Mark on his ass, and then I'm sure Fedor could submit him. But Hunt has the puncher's chance, plus he's pretty slippery for a big guy on the ground.
What the hell is up with the big man lately? After a valiant loss to Fedor, that should have given him a number of lessons to learn, he seems to have gone backwards. After he lost to Randleman way back, he had a single, determined, incredibly focused drive to get back to the top and challenge the champion. He did it, smashing everyone on the way, got to Fedor and couldn't beat him. Now, it's like he's lost his fire so to speak. I give him a chance, but only if he really, really wants it. And stops fucking walking away from people and looking at the clock.
I give this guy a slim chance. He kind of reminds me of Fedor, but not as good. He can strike, he's got the judo and sambo, and he is a tough mofo. With a couple more big name fights under his belt I think he could have a great fight with Fedor. Look for a battle between these two in the upcoming heavyweight GP.
I think those are the main 'threats' to Fedor. Whaddya reckon?
I heard Yoshida making noises about going up in weight and challenging him. Good idea - if he wants to DIE! Fabricio Werdum's name has been tossed around too... I don't think he's ready.
