Herman could put a serious beating on Struve, and I expect him too.

I really am shocked Struve beat Barry, but the height was just too big a factor. Once that fight hit the ground, I was so angry, since I knew Barry was done.

Struve usually takes a beating and comes back against the lower level fighters. Not sure he can survive a Herman beatdown.

I prefer Struve vs Miocic and Herman vs Russow

But still an intriguing match up nonetheless. Herman by UD 30-27 possibly 30-26. Epic-like 1st round, ok 2nd round, boring as fuck 3rd round as both will be fucked and Herman lnps Struve.

Russow is fighting Einemo I believe.

Stipe will probably get a prospect to fight since he is still a green prospect. No point in rushing him.

Struve v. Herman is going to be a close fight. Struve doesn't get enough credit imo, though I pick Herman in this fight.

Russow v. Einemo should keep Russow on the winning track.

Real curious and excited to see who Miocic will be matched up against, maybe Mitrione though he is coming off a loss or more likely DeFries who he would beat the shit out of

NarlyPersianDude - Very odd, seems a lot of you have amnesia, this is a tossup fight, why are you guys acting like Herman will run away with this, are you kidding. I will be going for Herman, but this is a hardcore 50/50 matchup. Do you guys even remember Herman's ufc debut, he fought Jon Olav Dynamo, a guy with years of inactivity on end, who came in as a grappler, and that guy was landing all day on Herman, and Herman barely beat this guy, by the skin of his teeth, surely you guys realize that Struve is a lot better than Herman. Also, Herman looks like one of those guys that is really talented, but fights very stupid sometimes. I was impressed with Herman's striking offense and td defense, but I was very unimpressed with Herman's striking defense.



Am I calling a Struve win, no, but surprised a lot of you think this is a cake fight for Herman, no way.


Perfect matchmaking DasRy



Sorry. I understand that. I just don't think much of Stefan Struve as a fighter. He's a skilled grappler sure, but he has no wrestling and he doesn't even use his height well as a striker. He's gotten beaten to a pulp in a bunch of fights he won against lower level guys.

Herman is skilled as fuck. Yeah, there's the danger of him gassing. But I think he can take anything Struve throws at him and Struve won't be able to take what comes back.

I personally think Einemo would beat Struve too. He's already a better grappler and he seems to have some heavy hand.

True. I guess I just see Struve as a gatekeeper of the division. Not top 10, but if you beat him you're good if you lose you're probably okay but never going to be elite.

That said though, Struve is, imo, a legit threat to most HW's so as you say, probably best that Miocic gets someone not as established.
