    How do you see this fight? And where do you think either fighter will move in division win or lose.

    If Struve isn't affected by the layoff and heart issue I think he wins this in the second round by ko or submission

    Struve should handle Meathead fairly easily. I love Mitrione...he's a funny and cool dude, but he is mid-tier at best, and hasn't beaten anybody whom I consider a serious Heavyweight. Struve has faced and beaten tougher competition, and I think he is ready to break into the the top ten. The guy has freakish height/length, good stand-up, good submissions, and fights with great heart. He might not win the HW belt, but I think he could be a serious contender if he continues to improve and maximizes his physical gifts/advantages.

    Struve by TKO or submission round 1.

    Struve can KO Meathead, but he shouldn't try to, he loses a brawl against Meathead 9/10 times.
    Struve should try to keep it on the outside and clinch and look for a takedown/trip/even pulling guard when Matt closes the distance.
    Another stuff to factor in is that Matt has a very long reach and is fast on his feet, closing distance shouldn't be all that hard.
    Very close fight to call, but I'm taking Meathead.

    At this point I would favor almost anyone with heavy hands over Struve. He's got a huge reach advantage, but appears to have no idea what to do with it, and he gets hit cleanly with pretty shocking consistency, something you just can't afford to do against Mittrione

    Struve's main chance has to be on the ground, he could try to sweep from guard or something but realistically he is going to get his egg cracked again.

    This will be an easy win for Mitrione.

    Struve better not stand with him. He has taken a lot of damage in his career.

    Struve is not only comming of 2 major injuries, but also his father died due to cancer a while ago.. Not only physically but also mentally its very interesting how this affects him as a fighter.
    Anyway looking forward to this.. Struve by TKO 2nd round.

    Lets not forget that Struve TKO'ed Miocic not so long ago. He had Hunt in full mount, its still a miracle how he messed that up..
