Mark Hunt-Stefan Struve Placed In Co-Main Event For UFC’s Return To Japan

Heavyweights Mark Hunt and Stefan Struve are now officially set to collide, as the two will meet in the co-main event for UFC on Fuel TV 8. The card goes down March 3 from Saitama, Japan.

The main event will consist of a light heavyweight contest between Brian Stann and Wanderlei Silva.

Hunt (8-7) has earned three wins in four UFC bouts, and will be returning to Japan where he had a series of bouts before entering the Octagon. He has toppled Ben Rothwell and Cheick Kongo recently.

Struve (25-5) scored a win over Stipe Miocic earlier this year, improving to 9-3 in the UFC. He is on a four-fight win streak, and is 6-1 in his last seven overall – with all the wins coming via stoppage.
