Yeah he definitely needs to use his height more. His main problem I think is that he just naturally loves to brawl. It's good that he's a natural fighter, but that in-your-face brawling mindset works a lot better when you're a short stocky pitbull than it does when you're a lanky 7 footer with a questionable chin.
He's now showing signs of being more serious and getting more intelligent in the cage though.
What I love about Struve is his aggression and killer instinct. There are no half-measures with this guy. He's kill or be killed. If he shakes you with a punch, he is IMMEDIATELY on you like stink on ****, looking to end it right there. If he's on the ground with you, he's constantly
looking for submissions, and he grabs them with speed and decisiveness.
