Heavyweights Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt will likely lock horns in March, as MMAWeekly.com is reporting the two have verbally agreed to face each other at UFC On Fuel TV 8. The card takes place in Japan on March 3 (March 2 in North America).
Struve (25-5) has won four straight fights since a loss to Travis Browne in early 2011. He has stopped Pat Barry and Lavar Johnson via submission, while knocking out Dave Herman and Stipe Miocic.
Hunt (8-7) has won three consecutive bouts since a six-fight losing skid from 2006-2010. He dropped Cheick Kongo earlier this year.
