Striking 9/10

A former K-1 World Grand Prix Champion and master of the walk-off knock out Hunt is one of the most feared strikers in MMA today; even at 42. Hunt is too hittable a target at times but he has one of the best chins in MMA as well.

Wrestling/Grappling 6/10

Hunt isn’t in the fight game to grapple; his sole purpose in the cage is to turn his opponent’s lights out. While Hunt isn’t going to look to take the fight to the mat he has developed and improved his takedown defense.

Submissions 6/10

Six of Hunt’s 10 career losses have come by way of submission; that speaks volumes. Hunt is a specialist and that specialty has nothing to do with the ground game.

Athleticism/Conditioning 7/10

Hunt may not look it but he is a surprisingly athletic heavyweight. His footwork is solid and he is as fluid a striker as you will see in the sport today. As far as conditioning goes, for a big man Hunt has a pretty good gas tank but he does slow quite a bit late in fights. But even though he slows down he is still able to maintain his power.

Fight IQ 7/10

Hunt has been in the fight game for a long time but he doesn’t win fights with head; Hunt wins because he has cinder blocks for hands. Hunt looks to engage in bloody wars rather than technical affairs and while that has endeared him to a legion of fans Hunt has lost fights he shouldn’t have lost.

Overall 35/50
