That said, had Hunt lost, it would have been some terrible choices on his part also. He had no business spending as much time on the ground as he did. That take down he did was ill advised as well.

Just saying.
It always looks less than stellar in hind sight when something isn't executed properly. It was a sloppy, fun and funny fight. In continuation with that Struve usually puts away his opponents when he achieves mount. He pounded Hunt's face in...hard shots mind you. Then he changed tactics. No different than Big Nog vs Frank Mir II. These things happen all the time. Then you had Hunt take down Struve which wasn't bad, but he opted to stay in his guard which was hilarious because he almost got submitted on several occasions.

After those sequence of events game planning was out the window. Both simply fighting on instincts and it seemed like Struve was really defensive; tired, starstruck, who knows. It's been awhile since two co-main events were that exciting back to back. It was a blood fest and Joe Silva + Dana & Co knew it.

- Japan crowd so of course a good number of Japanese fighters
- ex-Pride fighters
- very fan friendly style fights which again goes back to the exciting PRIDE ultra aggressive style of fights.

They all delivered in spades!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
