According to MMAJunkie, a heavyweight showdown between Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve, and Jared Rosholt is being targeted for UFC 193 which is set to go down on November 4, 2015 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Melbourne, Australia.
Struve has had a rough couple of years as of late, as he was brutally knocked out by Mark Hunt back in 2013 at UFC on Fuel TV 8. He then spent over a year on the sidelines dealing with a heart condition, and finally returned at UFC on FOX 13 last December, dropping yet another knockout loss to Alistair Overeem.
However, “Skyscraper” finally got back to his winning ways earlier this month when he met ageing legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 190. Struve battered the Brazilian on route to a unanimous decision victory, and he will look to put a win-streak together when he meets Rosholt.
Rosholt is currently riding a two-fight win streak, including a TKO victory over Josh Copeland last March, and a unanimous decision victory over Timothy Johnson earlier this month at UFC Fight Night 73. Rosholt will look to pick up a huge win when he meets Struve.
UFC 193 is being headline by a highly-anticipated welterweight title fight between current champion “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler, and No. 4-ranked Carlos “The Natural Born Killer” Condit.
