    He was going through some very serious personal issues at the time of those losses, and was completely, totally, rock-bottom skint. There was a point before he was with the UFC where he was trying to set up a website where fans could pay $80 to read his blog, and pay money for to call him or meet him. There was really long, rambling post he made about it...really difficult reading. Whatever happens from here, at least he's turned things around and made some decent money...just hope he's been smart with it this time.

    theres a video somewhere from yesterday where Hunt states that his drive to fight and win is because he thinks he's the best fighter on the planet an people keep telling him he's not good enough.

    can't find the video but it's a good watch.

    Losing to McCorkle wasn't the best start but anyone who beat a prime Wanderlei Silva and a prime Mirko Cro Cop definitely deserved another chance lol.

    At the media scrum yesterday Dana described Hunt's story as one of the best stories in the history of sport.

    If he gets by Dos Santos and then wins the title i'd say we would have a story that would outshine the Rocky films!

    Seems like if jds wants to take him down and sub him then he could do so fairly easily. I think most people are pulling for hunt but I just have a feeling that jds will stand with him and tko him after hunt gasses. Hope I'm wrong.
    Fuck no-gi

    Noggles Noguiera agrees - and also calls him Hunto haha not sure that's a typo or a pride reference

    “I think ‘Cigano’s’ ground game is the big difference in this fight, and he can take it. ‘Cigano’ and Hunt are two great strikers. Hunt has very heavy hands and is a great counterpuncher. ‘Cigano’ has to try to keep the fight at a distance, using his larger size, and go for the takedown when they’re in the clinch. ‘Cigano’ has a great game on the floor. This is his fourth camp with Ramon Lemos, who’s an excellent ground coach. I believe that taking Hunto to the ground is his great
