Not too interested in Saturday’s “UFC on FUEL TV: Struve vs. Miocic” event? After watching so many underdogs come through at UFC 152, we know just the trick to make this weekend’s festivities a tad more interesting.
A heavyweight shootout between Stefan Struve (Pictured) and Stipe Miocic headlines the freebie fight card. Miocic is pegged as a -240 odds-on favorite to ground “Skyscraper.”
Struve, on the other hand, checks in as nearly a 2-to-1 underdog. However, the 24-year-old shouldn’t feel too discouraged with the line, because eight of 12 longshots served up upset specials this past Saturday at UFC 152.
Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England hosts the bash.
