In August, news broke that UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve had been diagnosed with a leaking aortic valve and an enlarged heart. Initially, there was some fear that the condition might prematurely end the 25-year-old's promising MMA career.

After a brief stint in the hospital, Struve's doctors suggested he take medication for two months and then visit with them again in early October to decide the next course of action.

Struve met with his doctors last Wednesday. His manager Lex McMahon has since provided MMAFighting.com with a promising update on Struve's condition:

"Stefan Struve recently had a follow-up visit with his doctors to determine the efficacy of the treatment protocol he had been prescribed.

During his visit, the doctors informed Stefan that the leakage back into his heart has been greatly reduced.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

That is good news, I just hope it doesn't get back in it too early.
