Dutch giant Stefan Struve scored a sweet victory over the arch nemesis Sean McCorkle at the co-main vent of UFC 124 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Struve paid back Sean McCorkle for the long months of trash talk with a devastating TKO, also handing "Big Sexy" the first loss of his career.

Despite the result, it was Sean McCorkle attacking first. "Big Sexy" managed to take down Struve via a vicious slam, before looking for a Kimura submission lock. Struve's right hand was in a very dangerous position, but the Dutchman managed to pull his hand out back to safety. Struve reversed positions with a perfect sweep, finding himself in a full mount position. From there, it was a short way for victory, as the Dutchman unleashed the storm of ground and pound, forcing the referee to stop the action at 3:55 of Round 1.

Stefan Struve is now 5-2 in the UFC, currently enjoying a three-fight winning streak. A victory over a relatively unknown McCorkle may not be the biggest of his career, but Stefan Struve is definitely in right direction to becoming a leading force in the UFC Heavyweight division.

    It was Struve's left arm that was in danger.
