PLAYERS: Stefan Struve

UFC Stefan Struve

Plenty of fans complained all the livelong day about the lack of star power Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 5 roster packed. However, the freebie fight card turned out to be action packed with several thrilling finishes – including the show’s featured attraction between Stefan Struve (Pictured) and Stipe Miocic.

It took Struve a round to find his range, but once he did it was a wrap for Miocic. After catching Miocic with a vicious uppercut in the 2ndRound, Struve unleashed a flurry that had his heavyweight opponent out on his feet.

Just in case you were wondering, “Skyscraper” was nearly a 2-to-1 underdog against the Croatian.

UFC on FUEL TV 5 took place Saturday inside Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England.
