Stefan Struve (16-3) will be fighting Golden Glory heavyweight Denis ’The Menace’ Stojnic in a ‘loser gets cut’ match.

Fighters Only learned of the match at the weekend but could not report it until bout agreements were signed and retuned.

Struve made his UFC debut the weekend before last, being stopped by Junior Dos Santos in 54 seconds at UFC 95.

Denis threw some bombs against Cain. Didn't come close but they had some heat on them. I think Struve is going down again as he thinks he's some sort of striker. He's good on the ground but HE never takes the fight there. His opponent always does.

I got Stojnic by TKO in this one. Unless Struve gets his head out of his ass and knows to take the fight down to the ground.

Struve weighed in at 240. Link#1

Stojnic weighed in at 246. Link#2


Both fighters have absolutely wild hands, so this would be a toss up standing because of their lack of technique.
Stojnic has shown that is he a tough person to finish when watching the Cain Velasquez fight. Struve did not have a chance to show much against Cigano.

But Stojnic won a lot of his matches because he was able to utilize knees to the head of a ground opponent in most of his earlier matches. It could literally be stated that it is his "go to" move. Having that taken away from him, I would think Struve might have maybe a few more ways to win the fight.
