UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve remains hopeful to continue his fighting career despite being diagnosed with an enlarged heart and leaking aortic valve.
Struve, who has been undergoing tests since August when the issue was found, posted on Twitter that he is scheduled for another visit to the doctor soon.
Next week, oct 2nd I'm going back to the hospital for an echo and more tests. After, the docs here will give me their view on the future..

Struve (25-6) continues to believe he can compete again. He was last in action in March, falling to Mark Hunt. The loss snapped a four-fight win streak for “Skyscraper.”
