    Is this going to be Mark Hunt's next fight? Seems like a mismatch in regards to who is on a streak and who isn't. But also seems like a good match in terms of rank and skill.

    Based on what his lesser striking, worse grappling or worse cardio?
    The only way Rothwell beats Hunt is by going a vastly superior striker with an amazing chin.

    It's hilarious how easy fans are fooled by a win streak against favorable opponents.

    Already done, and it wasn't pretty.

    Kind of funny. This fight was so bad, it seems most people blocked it from their memory and forgot it ever happened.

    Big Ben is on a 3 fight win streak, all stoppages. Seems unfair to put him in with Hunt, who is on a two fight losing streak.

    Hunts recent loses are all against top 5 opponents and he was competitive in all of em, except for Stipe, which imo would of been competitive if Hunt had of been serious in training and not come into the fight so out of shape.

    Btw i dont think its a coincendent two of his opponents have been popped for peds after fighting him.... They scared homie.

    Already been done pretty sure Hunt used his superior grappling to get the W. Pretty sure it's the first time we heard how altitude affects fighters.

    It definitely wasn't pretty, but it had it's fun moments. It was stupid for the UFC to schedule that fight at such high elevation

    I got Hunt on this one. Just because Rothwell is on a winning streak and Hunt isn't, doesn't mean much to me. If Hunt comes ready(as ready as Hunt usually comes in lol) then he should have the edge against Rothwell. On the ground and in the stand up but this will no doubt be a another fun war. I don't see this fight happening though.

    I say give Hunt a crack at Mitrione. He needs a fight where he's the favorite. He's been in some wars lately. Nothing against Mitrione, but he won't fall too far on a loss either and Hunt would have the upper hand in my opinion.

    Nah he'll fight Cro Cop again. Or he should. Give Rothwell a Cain rematch. Or maybe Hunt v. Mitrione idk.

    I kinda agree with this. And Hunt should but who knows, 41 is starting to look old. Mitrione's in his late 30s as well but he hasn't really been in wars. Mitrione's the better athlete as well so who knows how it goes.
