This fight is not a gimmie but a winnable fight given to Hunt because I think the UFC brass believes its what the fans want is for Hunt to continue on his ascent up the ladder.

If Hunt comes in ready I have him getting the 1st round KO.

Struve's height hurts his TD ability. He will have to clinch trip him. Hunt will find that chin.

Which is a shame as I would rank Kongo and Rothwell ahead of Struve.

I could see Hunt getting easily submitted. Or Struve getting easily knocked out. Intrigued be I.

Struve better come in with the right gameplan. He will absolutely destroy Hunt in the grappling department. Striking is another story.

All aboard the Hunt train over here. Looking forward to seeing if his TDD and ground game have improved.

For Struve, it will be interesting to see if he can develop a jab.

I gotta go with Hunt on this one. I don't see Struve getting this to the ground.

I think Hunt takes this if he can stay fresh past the first, if it goes past the first. It'll be hard for Struve to take him down and he'll have no problem touching the Skyscraper's chin.
