    Aside from all the banter about Hunt/CroCop fight... One thing I noticed when watching the fight, Mirko took some heavy slugs and continued. Perhaps he didnt quite have the evil smirk Hunt did when taking punishement, but he got clobberred a few times in the face and body and managed to stand.
    Hunt can hit hard and despite Mirko's lack of aggression, he showed me for the first time that he has some one of the best chins in Pride.

    those were some nice axe kicks and roundhouses he landed. hunt's chin is sick, freaking islanders (samoans, polynesians, tanguns,) are insanely strong.

    Hunt dominated in that fight, IMO.

    Cropcop kicks and he would do the same at the same area.
     
  4. it's because his face is so smooth :mamoru:

    Hunt does have a granite chin for sure... but that was never disputed, its fact. Mirko has proved, through a poor showing at a fight, that he too has quite the chin.

    1) wtf wrestling shoes :eek4:

    2) why did crocop suck so hard in that fight? his kicks looked slow and powerless.

    there have been lots of talks about him having a glass chin, but that probably came because of the randleman fight

    Exactly... however, Randleman is a power house. He threw a punch crocop couldnt avoid and he was rocked, not KO'ed. The hammer punches to the throat and jaw after KO'ed him.
    I would bet, though not as accurate, randleman can generate more power in a punch than Hunt.

    Nice clip, Damnnnn Mirko met his match. I'm surprised Hunt didn't pull out some more of his usuall combos ending in knees. I've never seen Hunt in a MMA fight before (was that his first?), but hope to see him more. God Damn that boy can pack a wallop.

    I didn't expect him to throw axe kicks at all, it was surprising. I don't think Mirko can beat Hunt, for the fact that Hunt has an iron chin. Only possible way Mirko could beat Hunt is either by submission or he corners Hunt and throws combo after combo leading to a TKO, Hunt can't be KO'd.

    at least in K1, Le Banner beat him with a TKO (corner stoppage), and cro cop beat him with a unanimous decision

    I'm pretty sure Crocop can beat him via decision any fight, but I'm not sure of his abilities to actually finish Hunt.

    Why didn't Mirko take him down early? Hunts ground game is nonexistant.

    Mirko seemed like he did'nt want to fight Hunt, because he hit him twice and moved to the other corner and over and over..Mark had to chase his ass to make him fight.

    hunt was the worst matchup possible for him in pride, even worse than Fedor

    Adamantium Chin
    Great Cardio
    Big Bulky Physique
    K-1 Standard kickboxing skills
    Does not feel pain
    New and improved pummeling

    with mirko's lack of takedown skills he was royally screwed for this matchup. hunt is bigger, stronger and can bully cro cop around because of his size and because he is more of a puncher.

    Mirko should shoot his manager for signing that fight and mirko should kick himself for taking 2 top class fights so damn close together. he has killed any momentum he had going towards Fedor.

    The Hunt fight will just be like the Zulu fight in that as soon as he hits the ground it's over.
