(Demetrious Johnson had never seen a giraffe in person before this photo was taken. He still hasn’t, but don’t tell him that.)  Despite being a relatively humble guy by fighter’s standards, Stefan Struve isn’t afraid to make a bold statement every now and again. Or in today’s case, a couple obvious ones. First, Struve spoke to UFC.com about his upcoming UFC on FUEL 8 tilt with PRIDE legend Mark Hunt (check out an awesome promo for the event here). After making such straightforward statements as [Hunt] will not try and take me down and I’m fine when I keep my distance, Struve ended the interview by declaring that I‘m not a boy among men anymore, you know? Now I‘m a 265-pound, seven-foot monster. Which is fine, until you see how he made that statement. One thing’s for sure, it will be interesting to see how Struve is accepted by the people of Japan, who have a somewhat rocky history with creatures his size. After the jump: Struve makes some more obvious statements about the implications of a win on Saturday. What do you mean it’s a slow news day?
