I suspect JDS speed and movement will hurt him but JDS stamina looked a touch suspect vs Nelson and diabolical vs Cain so who knows as Hunt knows how to stick around especially in a shoot out.

This pleases me. If JDS is smart, he'll shoot a single in round one and finish Hunt with a kimura.

If JDS doesn't use his brain and stands up with Hunt, could be a very decent fight.

You're pulling for Dos Santos?

Damn the smart fight. If JDS is such a great stand-up fighter, he'll show us by going toe to toe with Hunt.

JDS is the superior striker IMO,but he better bring his A game and make sure he can take it the full three. Hunt has a solid chin. He'll find himself in the same situation as the Nelson fight.

I'm not sure he is. But someones getting knocked out. JDS is the clear favourite but i think Hunt might clean his clock.

Hunt is now maybe the best he's ever been in mma sice it's the first time he really dedication himself to this but his kickboxing prime was more than 10 ters ago and even bal then he wasn't known for his defense so JDS has a very good chance of winning a stand up fight Hunt is past his prime (in terms of kickboxing) JDS is bigger faster, his cardio isn't great but neither is Hunts and he has a better jab. Neither one has great defense but Hunt gets punched more often due to his style and willingness to take one to give one

But I see him wearing hunt down to a late 4th or 5th round TKO.

Hunt better get on that treadmill for the next 2 months.
It's only a 3 round fight.
