    Marko Hunto has expressed desire to fight Josh Barnett next

    Who takes it, if it happens?

    Seen it. Fight lasted a minute. See no reason why it would be any different.

    This fight will make me too sad. Barnett should fight someone like Shawn Jordan. Hunt should fight someone like Mitrione.

    Have Josh's takedowns declined and Hunt's takedown defense improved so much that a complete mismatch in PRIDE would have a different result?

    Hunt-o all day every day.
    I like this match. It's the kind of fight he needs to have and win right now.
    I would also like to see him fight Miocic.

    Possibly, that's what makes it interesting.

    Oh it's going to happen soon I'm sure. Barnett wants this too. Hunt KO'd a tough guy in Nelson, beat up a roided up Bigfoot, and had the balls to fight Werdurm for the interim belt on very short notice, and competed with Cigano almost an entire fighting standing.

    Barnett has beat Mir and got destroyed by Browne. Barnett's been inactive for too long and Hunt is far ahead of Josh Barnett at this point imo.

    Easy fight for Hunt, Hunt via brutal Tko

    Barnett would fuck Hunt up in pretty quick fashion

    Yeah, but I don't think it's fair to Barnett. I don't like rematches unless there's something in it for the past winner.

    Dunno, both guys are old as fuck, I kinda would like to see some new matches before they call it a career.

    Hunts TDD has improved too much. if Barnett relentlessly pursues the takedown he'll probably get it though.

    What do you mean? The Hw division is full of former PRIDE, SF champions, and UFC vets. They've all fought each other already including the new breed Cain/Cigano.

    I gotta say, i think Hunto's chin has been cracked a little too hard lately

    Josh is so mean, and i think he will come back with a vengeance. I just see him being relentless, wearing down Hunto, and eventually cracking him with a hook to the back of the ear or something, sending Marko to the canvas, where Josh would go for the kill

    If hunt fought Meathead, I'd be fucking sad. Mitrione needs to fight Ben Rothwell IMO. Stipe vs Hunt makes more sense but Hunt vs Barnett won't be bad.

    Hunt had never fought Arlovski, Browne, Miocic, Oleinik or Gonzaga just to name a few...

    Still plenty of interesting matchups to make.
