An exciting heavyweight match has been announced for the UFC Fight Night Netherlands card. MMA Fighting reports that Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva and Stefan Struve are set to go to battle against one another.

Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve is looking to get back in the winner’s bracket after winning just one of his four last bouts. Struve’s last fight was against Jared Rosholt at UFC 193 where Rosholt ended up winning a unanimous decision.

Silva also has just one win in his last six bouts, with one ending in a draw in one of the most exciting heavyweight fights seen against Mark Hunt. Silva would later lose the rematch to Hunt by TKO in his last performance, which was also on the UFC 193 card.

Recently re-signed UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem announced that he will be featured in the main event of the UFC Fight Night 87 card taking place at the Ahoy Rotterdam. No opponent has been named for Overeem yet.
