UFC on Fuel TV: Stefan Struve TKO's Herman in Round 2Posted on February 15, 2012, 09:38 PM by Anton Gurevich
Twenty-three year old prodigy Stefan "The Skyscraper" Struve extended his winning streak inside the Octagon to two, this time defeating Dave Herman via TKO in Round 2.
Despite the result, Herman was the one in charge of the action early on, managing to outstrike Struve during round one. Leg kicks were Herman's main weapon, alongside simple, but yet effective striking combinations. Herman connected with his strikes on several occasions, as it looked the victory is heading Pee-Wee's way.
However, Struve started to execute his gameplan in Round 2, with a more aggressive approach that immediately paid dividends. The Dutchman connected with a strong uppercut, knocking Herman down to the canvas. From there, it was a short way for Stefan Struve into a full mount position, and then ground-and-pound that forced the referee to stop the fight.
Stefan Struve is now 23-5 in his MMA career, 7-3 in the UFC. The winner of Kongo vs. Hunt bout could be next for the Skyscraper, as well as the newcomer Stipe Miocic, who was victorious in his bout at UFC on Fuel TV 1.
