Both Mark Hunt and Stefan Struve are on win streaks and one must come to an end.
Hunt landed punches and kicks early, so Struve decided to grab on and pull guard. Struve used his ground skill to pull off a butterfly guard sweep right into mount. The Skyscraper ground and pounded with some great punches and went for an armbar as Hunt was trying to escape, but Hunt defended well. Hunt finished the round in side control landing punches.
A big left hook started the round as Hunt connected early. Midway through the round Hunt was finding his way inside and landed punches at will. Hunt landed a beautiful trip sweep with just over two minutes left in the round. Hunt tried to get to his feet, but Struve landed in mount position and let his hands go. Again the round ended with Hunt on top, however this time in Struve’s guard.
The fatigue set in early in the third, but they both continue to throw. Hunt threw a big left hook that dropped Struve and Hunt just walked away. It took referee Herb D...

Stefan Struve was more than a 2-to-1 odds-on favorite to beat veteran Mark Hunt (pictured) on Saturday night. A win would have propelled “Skyscraper” into the upper echelon of the UFC heavyweight division.
For some peculiar reason, Struve didn’t want to use his significant reach advantage by executing jabs and kicks. Instead, the 25-year-old decided to block Hunt’s fists...

Struve later tweeted that...

Struve is on a four fight winning streak, with all of those wins coming by stoppage, which is impressive in the talent rich heavyweight division. Struve is calling for a title shot should he get past the very dangerous Mark Hunt. Not sure if Struve is ready for the likes of...

Nothing like 3-D CT Scan pics to show how bad a fracture really is. Nasty hit and nasty consequence. Struve’s chin has been a big question mark his entire career and even though he got knocked out by Hunt he still ate a number of big shots in the fight and proved he can take a punch. Stefan did not look good in this fight, especially after the first round. He stood in front...
This was an epic fight that had a controversial split decision. It appeared as though Silva was not too pleased with the result. I don’t blame him. Cool footage that was dug up by our friends at MiddleEasy.com.

Stefan Struve had his jaw broken in his UFC on Fuel TV fight Sunday in Japan, and he seems to be in pretty good spirits despite the injury.
The Dutch 7-footer lost to Mark Hunt by third-round TKO. After the fight, he tweeted that he wanted the referee, Herb Dean, to remove his tooth from his cheek so he could continue fighting. That plan quickly was abandoned after he realized his...
It looked good on paper. Never judge a book by its cover. Insert another predictable idiom here. After Hyun Gyu Lim made his presence felt it turned out to be a pretty disappointing night in terms of violence. 8 straight decisions ;ater it was up to the big boys to close things out with a bang. Saying they did just fine. would be an understatement. This was one of the exciting closes...
Last night’s first round will go down as one of the best rounds ever. It was just awesome to see Wandy win big in Japan again. Brian Stann was a willing participant in this battle and cordial in defeat. Awesome, awesome fight.
