    Hunt’s the man! KO’s the bug guy ftw…& saves the card while he’s at it. Props to Struve for taking a few of those bombs earlier on though.

  2. Jay says:

    I thought this fight was boring. They both looked sloppy. Hunt got gassed and head hunted and Struve made enough bad decisions to let hunt get the KO.

    Am i the only one who is no how impressed with Hunt? the mans MMA record is 9-7 last i checked thats HORRIBLE

    • GRT 3000 says:

      prob cuz your an MMA noob and don’t realize he transitioned from K1 and had zero ground game when he began MMA. look at his losses – all first round armbars and kimuras. Now that he’s improved that aspect (as proven by his defense against Struve) he’s been knockin’ dudes out. @TBAGGY he gasses b/c he’s 260, 38 years of age, and doesn’t use PEDS. the people who have followed MMA for more than a year realize what he’s accomplished.

        I agree totally. Well said. I knew hunt would wreck the UFC HW sissies. If he used PEDs like the others he would HW Champ.

        Couldn’t have said it better myself. He actually looked comfortable on the ground 😀 Owesome fight and maybe the knockout of the year…

      • Mellow says:

        WOW crazy how one can assume somebody is a MMA noob for not being interested in shit. 5 bucks says he loses to any top 5 fighter of his pleasing.

      • master mind says:

        grt you are a jackass. You try way to hard to make everyone believe you are so knowledgeable about MMA, but nobody cares. All hunt can do is hit hard because of his weight. Wow that makes him really good? “knowing this information makes me so freaking smart about the UFC and everyone else is wrong and are noobs.. I know more than everyone I’m so cool.” Hunt was absolutely dominated in this fight, until he got lucky. Every heavyweight has a punchers chance of winning. I am not impressed by Hunts sloppy performance at all. He will never even see the belt.

    • What were you watching... says:

      That was mercy shown by Hunt – He could have gone in and done real damage to Struve, when he realised the ref hadn’t called it he went into finish but was waved off. Hunt would have destroyed Struve.

    • Jc says:

      I’m guessing you didn’t see the massive break in struves jaw you fucking jerk job

  5. Sparta says:

    Battle of the bellies… Hunt vs ‘Big Country’ Nelson would be a cool fight, right?

  6. magoo says:

    Damn I had the giant Dutchman in this one, I guess he’s not quite there yet. He’s gotta learn to use that big reach like JBJ does, that being said good for Mark he’s been at her for awhile hopefully he reaps some cash benefits being he’s 38 and nearing the end of his career.

  7. Not You says:

    The fact that Struve gave up full mount twice pisses me off. He earned that jaw break. Great fighter with awesome skills, but he should have been smart about this one.
