    Lewis wins if they fought right now but Ngannou will overtake him with a few more years of training.

    Struve believes he's back in the mix because he stopped the ghost of Bigfoot Silva. Let's see if he's right.

    Meh.
    Fast tracking fighters frequently ruins them.

    He's only 29 with 2.5 yrs since his first fight.
    He has time.

    So some of you say Struve is too much too soon, others say he's not a big enough step up.

    I say set it up.

    People need to realize that Ngannou is only 9 fights into his MMA career, people calling for Derek Lewis or Roy Nelson that's too much too soon. I like the Struve matchup though, I definitely think that should be next. HW is incredibly shallow though so if he wins that he'd likely get a top 15 fight.

    He would kill Struve. Make it happen.

    29 years-old, at heavyweight, is the equivalent of a Sage Northcutt at 155. I agree, let him build himself up against non-ranked guys.
