Struve vs Jones at LHW

Postby thestephenbuitron » Feb 14. 2012, 13:42

Struve isnt that heavy of a heavyweight, what if he dropped down and took on jones? it would take away his reach advantage

i dont think struve can make the cut. he doesnt carry around any extra fat so i dont c him getting any leaner. but if he did, jones would still pick him apart. weve already seen too many holes in his game to be able to compete with someone like jones. and thats coming from some one that hates jones

Struve is around 260 dude. He is that heavy of a fighter. You only think he's not because he is tall.

I think that even if Struve made the cut, he would be far too stiff and slow with that much muscle mass and all that height. He would get killed by Jones. He's kinda slow now with 250-ish, imagine him at 205.

However, it's as good a match-up as any other in Serious fantasy match-ups, don't hate folks...

yeah, the dude bulked up like crazy over the last years, there's no way in hell he could make 205.

If Struve is weighting in at 205, that means we went back in a time machine to his 6th grade graduation. If they fight at heavy weight, after Jones bulks up a bit, I'd still take Jones via being better all around.

I think your main reason for posting this fantasy match-up was because Struve's reach is greater than Jones', and a lot of people attribute a large share of Jones' success to his significant reach advantages over his opponents, but this fight being proposed at 205 is ridiculous. Struve is 6'11'' and weighs around 260 without being heavily muscled. If this was to happen, this fight would have to take place at HW.
