Struve Calls For Step Up In Competition, Wants Fabricio Werdum | UFC NEWS


“There’s not a lot of other guys in the heavyweight division on a four-fight win streak right now. Four finishes in my last four fights. I believe I won six of my last seven. I’m not even sure. I think I got 29 pro wins now, but I think I’m closing in on that, but still, there’s no rush. I’m 24, imagine what I can do in four years, but I think I’m a couple of wins away. I think for example, Werdum would be an awesome fight for me next fight. You know, I think I can cope with him on the ground and I think I can rough him up on the feet.”

Outside of a couple of key losses, Fabricio Werdum has cemented himself as one of the worlds best heavyweight fighters in the world. It’s because of this fact that at 24-years old, Stefan Struve wants to fight him.

Coming off of a key victory over Stipe Miocic this past Saturday, the 7-foot “Skyscraper” hopes to catapult himself into the division elite and attempt to earn a crack at the title.
