"We're working on everything, same thing we do for every single fight. My wrestling, jiu-jitsu, kickboxing ... I think I'm better standing up and on the ground. I think I'm the more technical striker. He's got KO power but he still has to prove that against higher caliber fighters. Maybe his wrestling is better but if he wants to take me down he's gonna have to work from my guard."
Stefan Struve (via MMA Canada) expects to be "better at everything" than Dave Herman in their 265-pound tilt scheduled for the UFC on Fuel TV 1 event at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb., on Feb. 15, 2012. Herman made his Octagon debut at UFC 131 earlier this year, pounding out fellow ZUFFA debutante Jon Olav Einemo at the Rogers Arena. Unfortunately it did little to convince Struve, who recently strangled Pat Barry en route to a second round submission win at UFC on Versus 6 back on Oct. 1, that he's demonstrated any power against "higher-caliber" opponents. Anyone think "Pee Wee" proves him wrong and topples "The Skyscraper" on fight night?
