Just one week after losing to Junior dos Santos at UFC 95, Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve (16-3) is wasting no time in looking for his first win in the UFC.
According to a report from British MMA Magazine Fighters Only, Struve and British welterweight Paul Taylor (9-4-1) have both been offered fights for UFC 99, however their opponents are currently unknown and bout agreements have yet to be signed.
Struve is a young heavyweight prospect who’s loss to dos Santos at UFC 95 was his first loss in his last six fights. He signed with the UFC in December after earning five consecutive victories in 2008 where he finished all of his opponents via submission.
Taylor was rumored to face Matt Brown at UFC 95 where he was looking to improve upon his 2-3 record in the UFC. Unfortunately Taylor suffered broken ribs in his loss to Chris Lytle at UFC 89 and wasn’t fully recovered in time to face Brown.
UFC 99 is set to go down on June 13 at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany and will feature a main event of Rich Franklin battling Wanderlei Silva in a special catch weight bout.
