And I do wish more camps would take a harder line with their fighters and direct them to do the same. It's true for all weight classes, but especially HWs and I've been saying this for years. HWs especially because their names are much bigger, they have more drawing power, and they are getting hit a lot harder and their careers are longer. There are a lot of great, entertaining HWs who might be a little out of their depth in the UFC (Jordan, Mitrione, Struve), and that point comes in everyone's career when they have just lost a step compared to where they used to be and they start to lose fights that they would have won a couple of years ago (Mir, Crocop, Nelson). Well Struve isn't great but he is very tall and provides a spectacle. Especially if his opponent will engage on the ground. Now, instead of just getting sent out there to take heavy damage / get KTFO against top opposition over and over again, these fighters' teams need to be sending them to some slightly smaller orgs, there are plenty, Rizin and Bellator are the biggest at the moment. There they will be well looked after, top billing, big money, legit matchups that stretch them without overmatching them and they can carry on their careers in a positive manner. And hey if they are happy to take semi squash matches I don't think there's anything wrong with that - they have paid their dues they are putting on a show, entertaining the audience and showing what they are capable of and giving a big boost to the name value of their opponent and raising up the whole card. Crocop is on a 7 fight win streak inside the distance now, 8-1 since leaving the UFC.
