    The suspense is killing me as i'm watching this event live, WHO IS IT!?

    Can't be Werdum or Cain as they're booked together

    Same with Arlovski and Mir

    Hunt took a hiding from JDS so that's unlikely and all things seem to point to an Overeem fight on the McGregor card

    Miocic has Rothwell ruling these two out and he beat Hunt convincingly

    Mitrione said he'd like the fight but Hunt ALREADY has an opponent for November

    Overeem keeps calling out JDS, but Hunt has called out Overeem a lot in the past

    I reckon he's already booked to fight Browne but the outcome of the domestic violence thing needs to get cleared for him to get a Visa

    Otherwise it's gotta be a rematch with Overeem, Crocop, Fedor or Bigfoot

    Anyone got intel and a good educated guess?

    I thought I heard that JDS was going to be fighting Overeem. Maybe not, though.

    Hunt vs. Fedor would be cool. Cro Cop would be decent as well.

    I think it will be Mirko. The only other guys that aren't booked right now that I wouldn't mind Hunt facing would be Mitrione or Oliynyk

    Hunt vs. Cro Cop in Australia would be dope. I think it will either be that or Mitrione.

    I think it's what you said TS, Browne or if legal issues gets in the way it'll be Cro Cop.

    Matt Mitrione retweeted Carl

    "I'd be an honor to fight him but he's already locked up in a fight. I'd be fun though!"

    Surely it's gotta be Browne otherwise they would have announced it already i reckon

    Same, he's higher ranked still and it's very winnable for Hunt.

    Plus I cleaned up when Arlovski and Werdum were payin 4-1 against him and think i can get a hattrick

    Since Hunt probably has only a couple fights left in him, I hope it won't be a rematch.

    He already fought Crocop 2 times when they were in their prime, do we really need a 3rd fight when they are both washed up?

    He already fought Overeem, and a rematch would likely end up in the same way...
    + Overeem vs JDS is a fight I've been wanting to see for years.

    The first Bigfoot fight was an amazing brawl, and now that BF is off the juice and looks like Hong Man Choi after they removed his tumor (after the Fedor bout, the last fight in which he could enjoy his giant strength), Hunt would KO him with one jab.

    fresh match ups:

    -Mitrione sounded good, to be it's not happening.

    -Frank Mir would be amazing, but they booked him a pointless fight with AA who deserved an opponent ranked way higher; oh well at least we will finally see it, but talk about shitty timing...

    -Sign Melvin Manhoef for a one fight deal at open-weight, Hunt earned the right to avenge that KO.
    Obviously a fantasy match-up, but that's the one and only rematch I'd like to see of Hunt.

    Browne is suspended due to the accusations of domestic violence by his gf.

    I'm thinking it'll be Cro Cop or maybe even the Bigfoot rematch.
