    He fought at 205 at the beginning of his career. He was undefeated. If he were to drop back down, he'd dwarf even that 6'6" guy that just fought. He'd make Jones look like a midget. How would he do?

    Oh title run for sure. His consistent non use of a jab or teep or any kind of ranged attack will serve him and his LOL chin extremely well.

    Even worse.

    I could imagine that being a brutal weight cut for Stefan... seeing he doesn’t t carry a lot of body fat as is.

    Struve anorectic now? No way to fight, while being healthy, at LHW with his height. He could make weight, but it would only further damage his body.

    7 ft, 205 lbs.

    Put him next to Shaq, who's 100+ lbs heavier.

    His first 6 fights were at 205. He's made the weight cut many times and looked fine. He was actually chubby/ skinny fat at that weight. So he's already proved he can make the weight and be fine. I'm just wondering if his height would help him against shorter opponents at the UFC level.

    Yeah.. but he was 17-18 years old at the time.

    He was 240lbs for his UFC debut. Nowadays he is cutting to make 265lbs. He put a lot of weight.

    BTW... I think Struve should leave the UFC, take all the steroids he can get, bulk up to 350lbs and become a highly paid freakshow in KSW or Japan.

    Helped against Nelson? Or 5'10" Hunt?
    Nope
    Most LHW would beat Struve, as the skill level is even higher there than at HW

    He was barely 18 in his first few fights, he is a 7 foot grown up 30 year old man now. Does this need more explaining to you?

    Struve would have to amputate one of his legs to make 205.



    It's threads like this that give The Heavies a bad name.
