He really hasn't changed that much, he always did good against top guys minus his Bob Sapp period after Pride ended. He always had good TDD and submission defense. He just beat some overrated ufc guys by brutal KO now all of the new fans think he is a totally different fighter.

He is less quick than 10 years before, but his core and back seems stronger now

Silva's got a solid chin, but it's not exactly unbreakable. Velasquez and Cormier got to it.

I think Hunt has a lot of power, but his striking is very straight forward and predictable. When it's that straight forward, a strong guy like Dos Santos and Silva will be able to weather the storm.
