    MSM has 6 out of 7 wins by KO or TKO. He is explosive and athletic. He looked great in his last fight. Struve has been badly knocked out several times, is slow and gangling with poor striking defence and is coming off a jaw-breaking KO loss, long lay-off and serious heart condition.

    Mittrione by KO or TKO.

    I think MM is underrated, he goes in there and lights fools up for the most part.

    Struve might be able to lock up a sub but if he stands and trades he will get felled like a tree

    I like Meathead but he's shown that the middle of the division is as high as he'll get. Struve should win by submission, unless his jaw is so fucked nowadays that Meathead puts him out cold early.

    Anxious to see this fight, although I reckon it goes a lot like Schaub/Mitrione and Struve/Johnson. Will be bittersweet regardless, as I really like both guys.

    Fun fight, pulling for Strive who certainly has the skills to get it done.

    Don't mind MMM but don't want to see Struve take any more brutal beatings.

    He has much better wins than Meathead and fought higher level comp by far.

    Like both dudes,both leave it all hanging in there but I think Struve gets the sub. Meathead has got some heavy hands and I hope Struve has improved his boxing defence. It doesn't look like it sometimes but Struve hits pretty hard as well. It's gonna be a good fight.

    Struve can't take Meathead's punches so the question is, can he take him down, tangle him up somehow and keep him on the ground? I think the answer is no.

    I feel like Struve's got this. Probably by submissions or TKO.

    His fights never to to decision and Meathead isn't a high enough caliber fighter to KO Struve (Stipe, Barry, Lavar Johnson all couldn't do it. Do you really put Mitrione at the same level of a Dos Santos, Hunt, or Hapa?)

    So that's my thoughts on the matter. Thanks for reading

    Just because the BJJ Phenom can sub someone doesn't mean that Struve can. Anyway sorry about the pictures let me just start up my time machine, go into the future and bring back pictures of them actually fighting for you.

    So Mitrione ko's Struve five days a week? I assume its the work days, so since the card is on Saturday, bet the house on Struve TS.

    Good call

    I'd say this is a 50/50 fight. Pulling for Struve though it would be nice to see him get in the win column again

    figured you'd already done that since you obviously already know the result.

    Possible win for Mitrione. I like Struve and think Mitrione is a douche, but I don't like this fight for Struve for his come back.
