Good to see Struve back, but I don't see this one ending well for him. Mitrione by KO.

Never know what to expect from Struve. I thought he had a bad chin, but then hunt couldn't put him out.

But if his heart is beating more efficiently, he may be significantly improved. If his heart no longer struggles to supply his body with oxygen, his cardio and training may be much better.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Struve is the tallest guy in the company but he fights as if he were 5'4. Mark Hunt should've never been able to hit Struve in the face with that reach difference, but he did over and over. If Struve went and trained with Lyoto Machida for a while, I'd say he could win this with either a striking decision or a submission. But if he still continues to put his chin out there where even Might Mouse could kick him, Meathead may be able to put him down.


There is nobody in MMA more fun to watch fall than Struve. He falls for a round a half and always lands mangled bent up in the cage lol.

Hunt may have had a huge reach disadvantage but it's Mark Hunt he's probably put twice as many hours into kickboxing alone as Struve has put into MMA entirely.

Struve's a bad mother****er. He's going to be coming back with a vengeance. He's going to smash Mitrione.

After the huge layoff and medical issues Struve should've gotten a tune up fight.

Matt is a beast. This one is gonna be interesting.

Be nice...The Hybrid is on an amazing 2-fight win streak.

I hope Struve is really 100% full full full recovered from everything. If not, it will make for an uncomfortable viewing. But this will probably be the usual Struve fight where he is bloodied within three minutes, and then it's anyone's guess as to what happens from there.

I'll be rooting for Struve. The guy can't buy a break he gets his ass kicked in almost every fight even if he wins and then has this heart condition.
