Stefan Struve Thinks He is One Win Away from Being a Heavyweight Contender

Stefan Struve (25-5) thinks he has a lot to offer the UFC since he's so young and has already established himself as one the promotion's top heavyweights. When he looks for his fifth straight win against Mark Hunt (8-7), he is also seeking a chance to be in the top five of the division.

"That would put me in a good position as contender in the category, especially when you look my age," said Struve to TATAME. "I'm only 24-years-old and I am still evolving and maturing as a fighter. I'm working hard to improve my skills and I'm still growing in size. I hope to be a challenger and a future champion real soon."

Of those four straight wins, Struve has walked away with Submission on the Night twice and Fight of the Night once. Of Struve's 30 professional fights, only once has the decision been left to the judges. Hunt is 3-1 for the UFC, where he has won his last three fights.

Struve vs. Hunt is rumored for UFC on Fuel TV 8. The March 3 show returns to the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
