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.



Perfect summary.

Personally, I've found that in the pure "striker vs grappler" matches the grappler wins 9 times out of 10.

This might not be "pure" but its an approximation.

Hmm, if this poll is any indication, this just may be the Hot Bout for the UFC on Fuel 8 card.

Struve's good everywhere, but his bread and butter's obviously the ground. Unfortunately, he fights like he has something to prove. I say he plays Hunt's game and pays for it. Hunt by rd 1 KO

Yeah, I seen that tweet yesterday too.I do like this matchup.As a Hunt fan Struve's sub game kind of scares me.But then again Mark Hunt doesn't look back at explosions.

Junkie, posted an article this morn. saying the fight is official now, so either Hunt was joking, or the fight wasn't 100% official when he tweeted that.

Hunt likes to joke so i thought he might have been trolling a bit w/ that tweet,but w/ our luck lately, i wouldnt have been surprised. very glad it's official
