Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve has been offered a fight with Junior Dos Santos for his UFC debut, Fighters Only has learned.

A source close to the fight confirmed that Dos Santos has been offered to Struve, who will make his first appearance for the organisation at UFC 95.

However, the source added that Dos Santos was one of several potential opponents and that nothing has been confirmed as yet.

Speculation had been rife that Struve would face Neil Grove, the UK-based heavyweight who was signed within days of the Dutchman.

But Fighters Only was told on Friday that the two would definitely not be facing each other in their UFC debuts.

Great fight, I was wondering when we would see Dos Santos again. I thought for sure both fighters would recieve easy opponents to be built up. Doesn't appear to the case.

As long as Dos Santos keeps the fight standing he should take this one. If it hits the ground Stefan is very dangerous. In terms of training camp there's no contest. Dos Santos is training with the Noguiera brothers and I think has a lot more going for him at this point. Early KO by Junior.

Completely agree I want to see Dos Santos again after what he did to Werdum.
