  1. Nick says:

    Matt Mitrione just lost his opponent, so that’s the obvious choice.

  2. Thetude says:

    No mitrione was supposed to fight braughton but braughton pulled out. I say fuck mitrione and Travis browne should fight Mark Hunt. that would be epic!

  3. Bob says:

    I like Browne but dont kid yourself, hes not ready for a Mark Hunt…

    • Nuitari X says:

      I think he is. K-1 champ or not I think mark hunt is overrated.

      • Bob says:

        overrated? lmao.. hes 8-7 in MMA but if you look at all his losses except for when he got KO he dominated the fight and got caught in submissions.. Fedor also said Hunt was the first guy to almost sub him. Hunt beat on overeem and Fedor then got caught in subs. Now that hunt improved his takedown defense he is a monster even more… Mark Hunt is the best striker in the heavyweight division point blank. If he can learn wrestling and takedown defense plus some ground game he can be champ..Hes a way better striker than JDS

  4. maurice says:

    brown vs hunt or mitrione will be epic!!

  5. Clay says:

    Machida by decision. Shogun by 3rd round tko

  6. TD says:

    I think Hapa vs. Hunt would be amazing. Well said
