Stefan Struve Continues On Long Road Back To Octagon

Stefan Struve Continues On Long Road Back To Octagon

UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve remains hopeful to be competing against inside the Octagon in early 2014.

After being diagnosed with a pair of heart issues, Struve was cleared to resume a full training schedule earlier this month. He is currently working on eight sessions a week after spending several months on a limited routine.

When asked on Twitter recently if 2014 remains the targeted return date, Struve replied “Aiming for that, YES :)”

The 25-year-old had his four-fight win streak snapped this past March against Mark Hunt in Japan. He is now 25-6 in his career, including a 9-4 mark with the UFC.

“Still 3 tests coming up in January and February but if things keep going the way they are going I should be allowed to fight after that!” he added.
