I hope the odds reflect the idiocy of this board. I rarely bet on MMA but this would just be too good.

It's hard to take Hunt down?

It is one thing to say Hunt lacks skills in certain areas, but characterizing him as "garbage" is a stretch.

I think this will be an interesting fight. TD's will be difficult for Struve with the height difference, but knees from the clinch might be handy.

Struve shares a fight IQ with Martin Kampmann. I wouldn't be surprised if he felt another overhand right in his face during the first minute of the fight.

It's been a while since Struve fought like a jackass, I think with his length he could pick him apart and stay out of harm's way just long enough to wear him out or grab ahold of him and pull guard.

I'm really torn on this fight, it's either going one extreme way or the other.

Struve usually has a bad fight IQ and gets himself into precarious situations. If he can sweep Hunt early, he'll more than likely secure a sub.

Hunt, on the other hand is a bruiser. Big mismatch on height/reach, but his hands hit like donkey kicks and his chin is etched from granite. He connects, Struve will wake up the next day back in Holland wondering what the hell happened.

I'm going for my PRIDE boy Hunt via brutal KO Rd. 1

Struve should be permitted to wear a motorcycle helmet for this fight.

Also, UFC poster for this event?...
