I would actually be quite interested in a fight between Struve and Werdum, and I for one would not write off Struve from winning, not saying I'd favour him, but he'd have more than just a punchers chance.

Cardio.

I don't like that fight for him either though, not yet, after another win or 2.

Werdum has really improved his standup & is fighting at the very top level right now, the best he has ever looked imo.

I'd rather see him fight Browne if he wins or Carwin if he beats Roy.

Give Struve Russow, bigheaded Bigfoot, Rothwell or my personal favorite, Mir.

Mir/Werdum is also a bout I'd love to see.

Mir/Struve is an ideal match to make...Struve gets a top 10 former champ that would be a good measuring stick for him. Mir would have a chance to get back on track..call Joe Silva.

On the feet.

Striking.

Werdum has the advantage on the ground, but Struve is no slouch there either.

It certainly isnt the squash match you guys are trying to make it out to be.

Miocic was a top level striker. He just got outgunned at his own game.

If you think Werdum could have done that to him then, well, I really dont know what to say.

Werdum would knock Struve out imo. Werdum is on an entire different level in my mind.

If we were setting this fight up after Werdum/Overeem I would agree. After watching how much Werdums striking has improved in the Nelson & Russow fights, I think Werdum has a clear striking advantage.

I dont think so.

Struve has one decision, win or loss, in thirty fights.

He is on a four fight win streak and he just demolished a much better striker than either Russo or Nelson are/were.

Struve could hang with Werdum imo.

I like Werdum in that fight, but I like that fight a ton from a style standup. I think Werdum is a bit better everywhere as well but not so much that Struve can't overcome it.

I also wonder if the UFC would give Struve a call to fight Cormier, I'd love to see that fight.

I like Struve, but Werdum is on a completely different level of anyone he has ever fought before. Struve for me as at the point that I wont pick him to beat an upper echelon guy until he actually does. If that makes any sense.

He is ready for stiffer competition imo.

Agreed, Struve is legit and i like watching him fight cause they never go to a decision and he hangs it all on the line. He next opponent should be a Top 10-15 fighter, maybe Big Nog if he wins his next fight. If Struve wins that fight then he needs to fight a Top 10 heavyweight.

I was thinking about this today also, it's really a great replacement with Struve coming off a great performance & fresh in everyone's mind. It certainly doesn't hurt that Dana has been calling him a top 10 HW....

I prefer this to DCs wish for HD Pat.

I thought I read Tim Sylivia was fighting Cormier. Was that inaccurate (probably just a joke)?

Sylvia wants it, Zuffa doesn't. I think its probably their last ditch option.

First Mir, now Rockhold out of the November SF card. They really need to pull the plug on Strikeforce.

They have to do something about the training or whatever is causing the majority of these injuries for MMA fighters or these injuries are going to ruin the sport.

Yeah, Luke and then McMann both getting hurt means that this card had a good shot at getting cancelled as well, can't imagine that makes Showtime too happy.

Dana says Overeem will fight the winner of JDS/Cain. Fight might happen in March or April.

http://mmajunkie.com/news/31131/whit...h-or-april.mma

I really hope JDS wins so we can see him against Overeem.

Hopefully Overeem gets to fight this time around, really looking forward to a fight between him and Dos Santos or Cain for that matter.

Cain will take him down but won't finish him methinks. Cain via UD.
