Just one week after losing to Junior dos Santos at UFC 95, Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve (16-3) is wasting no time in looking for his first win in the UFC.

According to a report from British MMA Magazine Fighters Only, Struve and British welterweight Paul Taylor (9-4-1) have both been offered fights for UFC 99, however their opponents are currently unknown and bout agreements have yet to be signed.

love paul taylor but I think its a must win situation for him, perhaps, he's always exciting but loses, how long can he last and struve is on a def must win, no doubt

I don't think Taylor is going anywhere win or lose.

He'll be on every UK card the UFC holds, forever and ever and ever.

He's like the UK version of Chris Lytle .

As long as Taylors asking price remains reasonable I would keep him. He is a very exciting fighter much like a Leben, Lytle etc. As or Struve he's got to win or else they will cut him.

I will be interested in seeing who each is fighting. I would love to see Taylor vs. like an Anthony Johnson or Dan Hardy. Struve I have a tough time thinking who he could fight maybe a Neil Grove.

I don't think it's do or die for Struve. The kid is 21 and ran into a wrecking ball. I think Struve will bounce back. As for Paul Taylor, how can you let him go, even if he loses? It would be a shame to cut him and still have Houston Alexander on your roster. They're both energy men, and always get involved in slugfests.

I dunno why, but the title made me think Struve was fighting Taylor, and I immediately began to wonder how many limbs he would have to cut off to make welterweight.

i am ecstatic to see Taylor back in the Octagon, that dude never puts on a boring show. now, if he could only get a few wins together so he fights the better talent at 170 i would be extremely happy.

WAR TAYLOR
