True. But when he’s able to wrap that leg in the clinch and just fall down, it’s pretty cool.

True and it blows my mind that I've never seen him throw a single jab! A guy as big with that crazy reach never bothered to develop a job..what the fuck!!?

FWIW:

If I'm not mistaken, Struve is tied with Miocic for the most post-fight bonuses in UFC HW history, with 8.

He's had 3 bonuses in his last 6 fights.

He has taken an incredible amount of damage and has/had a serious heart condition that forced him to retire 6 months ago. Not looking forward to his return to be honest.

He also is one of 2 men to finish Stipe in the octagon

But like they have said in the past, the moment you think of retiring, you should.  Hunger is a huge aspect in fighting and if you're not as hungry as you were as a young lion, you're going to lose to the young lions.

Yeah, how dare that guy have an opinion about an MMA fighter's skills on an MMA forum? The nerve of some people!

Stefan “ Stipe Killer” Struve should be his ring name.

Horrible decision. He will never be a champion. He's received more than enough damage over the years. This is a man that needs to stop.

Doesn’t he have heart problems and panic attacks? I don’t see this comeback lasting too long. Wish him the best. Really nice guy. Hope he’s been working on using his attributes.
