A giant Dutchman who prefers submissions to knockouts? It even sounds odd, but that’s Stefan Struve, one of the winners of the best-submission bonus this Saturday night in Las Vegas, having pulled guard and coaxed the tapout from Lavar Johnson.
From atop his 2.10-meter frame, Struve has come by 16 of his 24 wins via submission. Now arriving at the six knockouts he has to his name, he did so by blending his grappling with striking, unlike other top Dutch fighters, like Alistair Overeem, for instance.
