I think that's about right.

I reckon that he'll have a chance to beat any champion, but I don't see him ever being favoured over someone like JDS, a top-level striker. He'll get a shot or two at the gold before he's done though, I'm sure.

A wrestler is always in danger of making a mistake and getting submitted, because Struve will aggressively dive on any submission opportunity that is offered to him. But for the next couple/few years at least, it seems that guys like Cain and Overeem and Cormier will likely be too strong for lanky Struve with his somewhat shaky chin.
