    Going with Magomedov in this one. Good test to see where he's at IMO.

    Interesting fight, I think Ruslan continues his streak.

    This card is starting to shape up, Moose - Vitor, Hendo - Bisping and now this fight, not bad at all.

    This will actually be his 4th fight in the UFC, he is currently 3-0 in the UFC.

    Ruslan would box the heck out of Struve.. different levels of boxing would be key here and he will take the decision.. Struve's kickboxing, height and reach won't help him much.

    Will be interesting to see how Ruslan deals with the size of Struve, in his last few fights he used his reach to stay on the outside and avoid power shots, gonna be hard to do that against Struve.

    Good fight. Ruslan's a great striker but has low power for a HW. Struve has had issue with heavy hitters in the past and won't have quite an issue here. He should be able to absorb some blows then get his range going and make it a fight. I'll still take Ruslan but think Struve does well in this fight.
