This would be my take on it. Sure Johnson has power, but so does James Toney, what good did it do him against Couture?
Johnson got worked on the ground by PAT...BARRY, but he's going to beat Struve? Not bloody likely.
Johnson has about 10 seconds to knock Struve out, then the fight hits the ground and it's over.
Incidently, this is still a really good fight for Johnson to take, simply because if he did manage to win, his rep in the div would be grossly out of proportion to his skill set, it's his best chance at big $$$. And if he loses, it's a fight on short notice to a decent HW, the loss won't hurt him much.
