I predicted Struve to get the submission in El Bresko's competition but I really wanna see Mark Hunt knock him out.

Rally for Mark Hunt!

Come on Hunt, I just want to see The Super Samoan fight for the title. If he beats Struve, he should face the winner of Reem/JDS, then the winner of that fights for the title.

I voiced my opinion on this on another thread. 2 of my favourite HW fighters. The perfect outcome for me would be a barnstorming 5 rounder with near KOs and near submissions, finishing in a draw with everbody cheering and ticker taper fyling around everywhere. I find it hard to predict fiights that involve my favourite fighter but when 2 are involved its damn near impossible! Draw!!

I honestly think Hunt can take this. Struve gets too wild on the feet. He looked decent against Miocic, but really the other matchups he's had have been mediocre at best. Hunt has the power and striking to KO anyone in the division. His confidence is high and he's been training his ass off. No doubt he's been preparing for Struve's length and ground game.

Hunt via KO round two.

... What an intriguing match-up. I picked Hunt but had to really think about it, because if he keeps it on the feet, he throws precise brutal power shots. Mark was also a K-1 grand Champion. His legkicks are vicious. Steph has sick-stand up too but Mark still possess nasty one punch KO power and argurably one of the top 5 chins of all-time. It's going to be really interesting on the feet. This fight could go either way really. If Struve uses his range and keeps Hunt on the outside, there will be some nasty legkick exchanges. If it goes to the ground, I give Steph a huge advantage. Struve the most active heavyweight on the ground and with his crazy height & wicked leverage, Mark may gas and if so, it's gonna be all Struve. He might triangle up or grab something...either Hunt by TKO or Struve by submission. It's that unpredictable...

Should Struve come into the fight looking for takedowns, he should take it. I don't see why he wouldn't either. Hunts wrestling/grappling are horrid. If Struve can use his reach to stay out of trouble long enough to score takedowns, he wins this.
