Stefan Struve’s visit to Japan is one he won’t soon forget, but not for any positive reasons. He took a third round TKO loss to Mark Hunt followed by a visit to the emergency room for a broken jaw. For anyone who has never seen an x-ray of a broken jaw, Struve has provided an image of what his looks like through a tweet.

After stopping his last four fights, Struve had hoped a win over Hunt would place him near title contention. Instead, he’s looking at an indefinite layoff.
For Hunt, he left with an extra $50,000 for Knockout of the Night and bumped his record up to 9-7 with four straight wins. Wanderlei Silva also took the same honor after defeating Brian Stann in the main event.
UFC on FUEL TV 8 came from the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. It was the UFC’s return to the country after they held a PPV there last February.
