Mark Hunt fans can start banging their drums again because it looks like a fight between he and Stefan Struve is close to becoming official.

According to MMAWeekly, a source close to the fight confirmed that verbal agreements are in place and the fight between Hunt and Struve will take place March 2 in Japan.

Struve wins. How? No idea but he's my boy and he's kind of tall.

I'm thinking Struve. He's on an impressive four-fight winning streak and I don't think he'll risk it by standing with Hunt. He'll probably take him down and try to submit him as soon as the fight starts.

And get viciously knocked out in doing so!

I have to agree with Shane though, I don't want to see either lose, but I am a way bigger fan of Hunt's so,

You aren't the only one Sparky. I bet a ton of people on here would say the same thing, myself included.

a year ago I would've picked Hunt by KO but Struve has improved so much and looked great against Miocic and Johnson with his chin holding up very well lately. I think we see a quick sub from The Skyscraper!!

Struve has weakness against Fat guy's with powerful hands. No one is fatter or more powerful in their hands then Mark Hunt!

I see something like this:

I do love this GIF, but I gotta rate Hunt a bit higher than Buentello.

Does a guy who has a propensity to get KO'd, get KO'd by a knockout artist or does a guy who was subbed 5 times in a 6 fight span get tapped by a guy with slick subs.

I think this matchup is a lot of fun. Especially because Struve can't wrestle for shit and likes to scrap.
