  Struve did beat a kickboxer about the same size in Pat Barry though. If Struve gets it to the 2nd round, that's his money round. He's going to turn it up in the 2nd round and try to get Hunt down for the sub.

Roy Nelson did it. Not to mention Hunt has fought tall guys before and come out on top. Though mostly in kickboxing. I think he can definitely get the fist where it needs to go.

"Struve who literally grew up in the Octagon" Someone should should update his Wiki "Born at McNichols arena in November 1993, Stefan learned math observing ring card girls walking around with giant numbers and tallying judges scorecards. As a teenager Struve earned extra money serving as an Octagon post, if you look closely you can see there is one that's a little taller than the rest".

Good come back fight for Hunt - if it stays standing I guess Hunt, if Struve somehow gets him down its probably all over. I could see Struve winning by mounted GnP into a RNC

Id love to see Marko hunto fold him in half, but I think the youngster is gonna do some fancy Jew jitsu move on him.

He's a top 10-15 heavyweight in the UFC. People winning by being big and powerful is just the way that division is. You could say the same thing about pretty much any heavyweight fight.
