I doubt many people seen upcoming mma prospect Stefan Struve fight against Denis Stojnic at UFC 99. They sure missed one hell of a fight. The man they call the Skyscraper towers above all his other opponents with that 6’11 frame. So what does Stefan Struve bring to the cage and what does the future hold for this young man? That is what I want to talk about today here in this article.
There are several factors that make mma prospect Stefan Struve one of the more interesting fighters on the rise. The most obvious one the fact that he stands at 6’11 and is still growing into his body. Here in a couple year if he can add some weight onto that frame you might be looking at someone to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division. The other real important thing to keep in mind is that this young man is only 21 years old and already has amassed a 17-3 professional record.
Even though he was still seen as a mma prospect Stefan Struve already had wins over former UFC fighters Colin Robinson and Mario Neto before joining the UFC. Joe Silva and Dana White sure didn’t do him any favors by putting him in there against Junior Dos Santos in his very first fight. While you can argue that the stoppage may have been a little early Junior Dos Santos was just too much for Stefan Struve in his first UFC fight. I’m shocked that Joe Silva would sacrifice such a good upcoming mma prospect in a fight that way.
