He is surely the number one guy you dont want to meet in a dark ally

Its a shame i really like Struve

I don't want to act like Hunt has some amazing record. And I like both of these guys. Struve has potential to be pretty good.

But who has Struve beat? Hunt gets overrated by his fans and Struve gets overrated by his. But who has Struve beat? Why do many people think he is Rickson Gracie? Because he sub'd Lavar Johnson and Pat Barry? Anytime he has fought a decent or good fighter he has gotten KO'd.

Rothwell and Kongo are probably both better than anyone Struve has beat.

If they roll around on the ground of course Struve has a big advantage. But if they stay standing Hunt has a huge advantage. Last I checked fights start standing. Last I checked Struve didn't have very good TDs.

They both have ways to win. But I think people are overrating Struve more than they are overrating Hunt.

Lavar Johnson and Pat Barry both have worse ground games than Hunt in my opinion.

I don't think it has as much to do with Struve and who he's beat as much as it does Hunt and who he's lost to, namely Sean McCorkle who didn't just beat him but finished him.

Because of that I can't take Mark Hunt seriously as a contender or a relevant fighter in MMA today, Sean McCorkle is pretty bad, and yeah it was two years ago but Hunt's "improved" ground game isn't really all that improved to me, I still remain adamant had he and Rothwell not fought in Colorado he'd have lost to him and I expect Struve to wrap him up fairly quickly.

I also don't care about his victory over Chieck Kongo, let's not act like Kongo's some world-beater who fought for the title in the past.

Either way, I'm not convinced either of these guys is a legit contender and I don't even think they're top ten and I certainly don't see them beating Junior, Cain, Reem, Cormier, or Barnett.

THe McCorkle fight was an aberration. The UFC was basically having to use him because of contract. They didn't really want him and Hunt didn't seem like he wanted a career in the UFC but rather Japan or kickboxing. He was not ready for that fight and didn't take it seriously. Something clicked where he realized this is a good chance at making a living and he seemed much improved the next fight and more in shape. How can a guy beat Rothwell and Kongo and get easily finsihed vs. McCorkle? He takes is MMA career much more serious than he did then. He hasn't improved so much so as got serious, instead of a sideshow in Japan he is embracing being a decent fighter in the UFC.

No one acts like Kongo is a world beater. But he is better than anyone Struve has beat. Rothwell is too. And I don't like either of those fighters.

Before that he was getting beat by straight killers. Fedor, Barnett, Manhoaf, Mousasi...

Struve defiantly has his way of winning. But if he doesn't get Hunt down early he is getting KO'd...

Hunt has sharpened his game since mcorkle. He had a huge layoff and was thinking it might be his last ufc fight

its not just about wins and losses and numbers of....

Hunt has been training hard for the first time in his life and is motivated

the funny thing is even if Hunt gets another big ko, i dont think it will change ppls opinions on him. Needs a top5 guy if he wins this imo

Really looking forward to this one. I'm a huge Struve fan, and his stand up has been really improving along with his great submissions. Hunt is Hunt though, and the dude is a complete beast. Submissions Vs Striking, should be awesome.
