UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve left Japan recently anticipating surgery as quickly as possible for a broken jaw. Now, “The Skyscraper” has revealed on Twitter that he will be enduring some more time before he goes under the operating light.
“3 days to find out if I have a hospital bacteria from Japan before they can do surgery on the jaw, wow this is gonna suck!!” Struve wrote. “I counted on getting surgery today, waiting for another 3 days is gonna suck soooooo bad, this is brutal.”
Struve suffered a third round knockout loss to Mark Hunt in the co-main event of UFC on FUEL TV: Silva vs. Stann over the weekend.
