Stefan Struve Looking To Move Ahead In Heavyweight Division

Stefan Struve has spent the past three-plus years competing inside the Octagon.

Now, for the first time in his career, Struve will main event a show, as he takes on Stipe Miocic today at UFC on Fuel TV: Struve vs. Miocic. The card goes down from Nottingham, England.

For Struve, who is 24-5 in his career and 8-3 with the UFC, this is the perfect time to put his full skill set on display.

I’m 24 now, I’m not a boy. I’m one of the bigger guys. I’m just so confident now. I believe we’re both in the Top-10, and with a win – like Dana White said – we’ll be in the Top-5.

Struve has earned three consecutive victories since a knockout loss to Travis Browne last year. “Skyscraper,” who now checks in at 7-feet tall, has stopped Lavar Johnson, Dave Herman and Pat Barry since the defeat.

In fact, each of Struve’s last five UFC wins have come by either a form of knockout or submission, and seven of the eight have been ended early.
