If the MiddleEasy red monster were a real living being it would probably be about the size of Stefan Struve and someone might mistake it for a sasquatch that’s been getting his fur dyed red at some salon in L.A. where all the rock-a-billy tatted pierced chicks work. He’d live in the Harajuku district of Japan and would be like the nicer and less evil Japanese version of Puerto Rico’s Chupacabra. He’d get buff by doing bicep curls with five or six small Japanese women hanging onto his arms like Alistair Overeem and he’d hang out with dudes that can relate to him. Dudes like Stefan Struve, who is in Japan right now as a matter of fact getting ready for his fight with Mark Hunt this weekend at UFC on FUEL. In a recent UFC piece-Struve claims to be a monster himself who is ready to show off some new skills to Japan and the rest of the UFC viewing fans.
“If I hit someone with my jab right now, they’re really going to feel it. If you compare that to when I entered the UFC when I was 21 years old, there wasn’t nearly as much power in my shots as there is now.”
“If you look at our records, you don’t expect a decision. I don’t expect a decision. I trained really hard for this fight; I worked on a bunch of new stuff, and I can’t wait to show it. I can’t wait to show the crowd in Japan and the entire MMA world that I truly am one of the best heavyweights in the world.”
“I’m not a boy among men anymore, you know? Now I’m a 265-pound, seven-foot monster.”
If Struve really is a monster then Japan has been invaded by a smaller and less angry version of Godzilla that only unleashes his beastly destruction in the cage. He faces Mark Hunt this Saturday at UFC on FUEL 8 starting at 7pm EST time in the US. [Source]
