I was find old sherdog posts from last month about JDS-Hunt and almost everybody wrote then JDS would kill Hunt. (He is the GOAT, Hunt is gatekeeper, and so on).
Now most of sherdogger think Hunt would knock JDS out. Why?
Because he lost the world HW title against the world no.1 supermotivated wrestling based fighter in five rounds?
IMHO is same fighter who was before the fight.
 
Because they do not realize that it wasn't so much as Cain's kickboxing that gave Junior trouble it was the kickboxing + the wrestling + the constant pressure. Hunt only has one piece of that formula.

bc they don't think jds can submit him on the ground, and if it stays standing there is a big chance hunt will land. We haven't seen jds' ground game until last fight

Bingo. It has always annoyed me how few people on here seem to understand this.
 
MMA fans have half the attention span of Goldfish. That's why. I love yall, but for serious, yall fickle.

it's always sort of cliche around here that most sherdoggers are dumb and don't really understand MMA,

but I swear to God, it's true. It's completely true. Because I find myself having to EXPLAIN this stuff, as if to a child, to 90% of sherdog.

Losing to a wrestler with good striking and amazing cardio means JDS is going to lose to a powerful striker with weak wrestling and weak cardio? Really sherdoggers? Really?
 
As i see the biggest winner of JDS-Cain is Overeem. Now he is the God of sherdoggers. Wierd! I like Overeem, no offence, he is top 3 fighter but Cain and JDS are top 3 fighters as well.
 
I have the Reem at #4. Cormier at #3.

...personally. (they're pretty interchangeable really. I just like Daniel a little more.)
 
Because MMA fans are the most fickle and fair weather in all of sport.(Speaking in generalities so posters should not be offended if this does not apply to them)
 
Well, I would guess that's because on large scale, Sherdoggers intellect is generally lacking, and personal hygiene is poor.

Being top 3 doesn't matter much when the top 1 (Overeem) is a huge bulk of chemically induced destruction. Only a matter of time till the strap is his.

Ironically I think Overeem has a much better chance against Cain than JDS. Cain can't afford to stand around and kickbox with Alistair but if he rushes in for a takedown he liable to catch an uberknee and I don't think he can take more than one or two. JDS on the other hand can definitely find Overeem's sometimes questionable chin.

Throw in Werdum and DC and the HW title picture looks pretty exciting.

Do you have polls, or some statistical analysis showing that that prevailing Sherdog opinion on this has really changed?
 
I think Hunt can definitely pressure JDS and land some big bombs. The ground game of JDS is of a very,very unknown quality at this time and he did not look good on the ground against Cain at all like he didnt know what he was doing.

Hunt has a solid chin and is technically a better striker than JDS.
 
Laughable. Mark Hunt is the hardest puncher in the heavyweight division, PERIOD. If he connects, you are going to sleep.

Hunt outboxed Mike Bernardo, formerly ranked in the top 50 of the world in heavyweight boxing.

TS, you are kidding yourself if you think Hunt couldn't beat JDS. Hunt also slapped a kimura on Fedor and almost finished him.

Yeah but what you dont realize is that while Cain beat on Junior for 5 rounds and couldnt put him away Hunto can with a couple well-placed shots.

Hunts 1 dimension> Cains 2 dimensions
 
Hunt would destroy JDS regarding of what sherdogers think past, present or future.

Dont bother looking for logic in this forum. You're rarely gonna find any.

That said I am among the posters who were calling for JDS vs Hunt fight for a while now. I am still convinced him and not Frank Mir should have had this title shot.

Here is why I like that fight- not that long ago, before Overeem got in the UFC, Hunt was the only fighter that imho stood a chance of beating JDS standing. It was either he catches JDS or gets outpointed on the outside if JDS decides to stick and move (what I believe his plan against a guy like Hunt should be). Either way would make for pretty interesting boxing match with some GG may be if JDS decides to test his wrestling.
