Struve got professionally KO'd when we last saw him. Had no reason to think anything else would happen.

Struve just doesn't use his length well. You can't let Tuivasa in that close.

Great game plan execution. If that goes on Struve gets dangerous. Tui needed that late round finish, IMO.

It's so insane that Struve is seemingly incapable of taking advantage of his size.
