UFC heavyweight contender Stefan Struve has an opponent in mind for his next bout, and the young buck is hoping to take out one of the most accomplished veterans in his weight class.

I normally am not a fan of top 10 guys calling out past their prime legends, but I think this one would actually make for a good fight. It's a very interesting fight stylistically. I say book it.

Normally I say to be respectful to your elders but right now they are actually performing and ranked real closely. Plus, that fight does make sense.

Makes for a good fight in more ways than one. If this fight happens I'm not sure who I'd pick.

It would be horrifying to see Nog lose to a guy he'd have made into a pretzel in his prime.

Nog is passed his prime, yes, but his boxing and power have gotten better. Nog is still a skilled fighter, and I would wager to say he's a better fighter than Struve still, and is ranked higher on my top 20.

I can't see Struve winning any way other then Dec. I think Nog would do pretty well in that fight.
