What do you say to an allegedly seven foot tall Dutch 24-year-old with twenty-five wins and twenty-four stoppages in his young MMA career? Probably this (thanks Google Translate):
Je bent erg lang en eng en je hebt vier overwinningen op rij. Eerlijk gezegd denk ik dat je kan ver gaan in de zwaargewicht divisie, zolang u stopt met zoveel moeilijke opnamen tot aan de kin.
Stefan Struve is growing right before our very eyes. Now he has four wins in a row and has gone 9-3 since joining the UFC with losses only to Roy Nelson, Travis Browne and Junior Dos Santos. He’s a giant who wants to scrap and shows great joy in being covered in blood. He’s a born fighter, and he took out a man known to many as ‘Lil Cro Cop’ today in Nottingham in Fight of the Night fashion. It’s like Struve can’t help but get into the most entertaining fight possible. He’s the fighting equivalent of Kramer, constant hijinx and and smiles brought to the viewers of his actions, and tonight many were in awe of the main event slugfest in Nottingham.
At the post-fight press conference, things came full circle and Struve called out JDS, saying he’s a mere fight or two away from receiving a title shot. I say bravo Stefan Struve. No matter what happens in that scenario we shall be entertained. I want to give you a bloody high five that I will have to jump at to complete.
