Hunt's standing game is probably better than Struve's sub game.

If Struve can't get hunt down...since Stuve is not a wrestler...he will be waking up looking at the ceiling.

There is no hype. No one is claiming world champ. He has a great chin and is one of the heavier handed guys in the UFC. Makes him dangerous if he stuffs even 1 TD.

There is definitely hype. It wasn't so long ago people were wanting to see him go against Junior/Overeem after knocking out Kongo of all people.

Completely agree about Struve getting hunt down, i imagine it more of a gets clipped and Hunt follows him to the ground arm bar situation. If you can get arm barred by Sean McCorkle then you can definitely suffer the same fate against Struve.

Yeah I agree. Hunt is better then both Pat Barry and Lavar Johnson on the feet. I don't see him doing to Hunt what he did to them. We have seen Struve fold against guys with crazy power in the past and I think it happens again here.

Hunt was basically going thru the motions vs. McCorkle. People look way too much into that fight. The UFC owed Hunt a fight or 2 after from Pride. They didn't want him, and Hunt knew that. He was basically collecting a check. But he said he realized this is his only shot to make good money off fighting...and since he has started getting in better shape and has worked on his TDD.

Yea people are wanting him to fight Overeem or JDS....because people like stand up fights. And that is what we would hope would happen in either of those. In a straight standing fight I believe Hunt would KO Overeem. JDS would probably use too much footwork and movement. But yea, just because people want to see Hunt vs. strikers doesn't mean he is hyped. It means they would be cool fights. Fights he has a much better chance in than going against a Mir, Barentt, or Cain. If you haven't followed Hunt's career then you are missing the point where he is a really solid striker. People didn't call for those fights just because he KO'd Kongo.

Struve has been in the UFC for a long time now. Yet he really has no good wins. He subs guys like Lavar and Pat Barry. His win over Miocic I guess was nice, but again, Miocic was unproven and fairly green still.

This should be a fun fight. People like Hunt. I don't think anyone is seriously saying he is a top 5 fighter or even can be. People like him and like to watch him fight.

Ah well, i always saw it as hype myself.

I'm actually a Hunt fan and have followed his career, but all those sub losses are constantly in my mind when i think about him, especially against a guy like Struve who is definitely capable of pulling of a sub after taking a beating.

We shall see my friend, we shall see .

Yeah, I always thought there was a lot of Hunt hype. Especially on these boards.

Definitely. People were definitely hailing him as the future king of the division at one point.
