    Definitely a fight I've silently been hoping they'd make. Something about it really appeals to me.

    Dude's got a fighter's heart, no doubt about that. Best of luck to the big man.

    Glad he's healthier but it looks like his entire career is going to consist of beating marginal guys, people hyping him up saying "Struve knows how to use his height and reach now!", then getting a top 10 opponent, not using his reach at all, and getting KTFO.

    Is it because Nog can actually win? Hahaha.

    Nog is a legend and he's had success in the UFC but he's got to be considering retirement. Perhaps this should be his next fight and if he can't get past Struve I see no other route for the future Hall of Famer then to retire.

    Hahahaha, you're right on the nose with that one. With as much reach as he has you'd expect him to get hit much less. I think his team really fucked up by not teaching him how to properly take advantage of that reach and now he's basically stuck in the same routine of getting battered win or lose.

    With some luck, having a new heart valve may improve his cardio.
