    Why doesn't he copy Nick Diaz, with the longest reach in MMA?

    ANSWER : He is an extremely unathletic & uncoordinated 7 foot tall dude.

    Why doesn't he copy Cormier and become 2 division champ?

    He did used to fight at 205, so this is a good question.

    Struve is so slow, he is unbelievably slow. Guys like Roy Nelson and Hunt were lighting him up because they were too fast for him haha, take that into consideration.

    I think it would take 1 minute for Struve to execute the kick to be honest.

    He's not the best kicker in MMA, not even close. MMA is dominated by the roundhouse kick, which Conor rarely uses. But he is the best teep/ side kick/ distance+linear kicker in MMA. That's a style of kicking that fits Struve's frame.

    Roy Nelson just hopped in with an overhand right thirty seconds into the fight. Hell, Struve was only 22 in that fight.

    He's slow and uncoordinated, he is what he is.

    TBH I dont think Struve can stand on one leg long enough.
    Dude would fall over.

    Struve is so slow, you'll slip and recenter your head and the punch still hasn't come yet.
