UFC News: UFC Signs Dutch Heavyweight Stefan Struve

Fighters Only Magazine is Reporting that the UFC has inked Dutch Heavyweight prospect Stefan Struve to a four fight deal

The UFC has signed Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve to a four-fight deal, Fighters Only can exclusively reveal.  He will make his debut at UFC 95 in London, although his opponent has not been agreed upon.  “I think I can beat most of the guys there. They have five or six really good heavyweights. The other guys… not so good, I think,” Struve told us.  Struve (22-2) was picked up by the promotion after submitting UFC veteran Mario ‘Sukata’ Neto several weeks ago. And in July, he stopped another UFC veteran – Colin Robinson – with a triangle after a one-sided first round. Just 20 years old, Struve has tapped two Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts in his four-year career and has won more than 75 per cent of his fights by submission. He was reportedly courted by Affliction and Dream as well as the UFC in recent weeks.

This is a really solid addition as Struve really appears to be a good prospect at just 20 years old.  He will debut at UFC 95.  I will be interested to see if they pit him against Neil Grove, or if they give him a little easier fight.
