After blasting through then top five heavyweight and heavily favored Fabricio Werdum at UFC 90 in October, Team Nogueria’s Junior Dos Santos (7-1) is looking to prove he isn’t a one hit wonder. The Brazilian heavyweight showed what kind of power and striking ability he brings into the Octagon with a devastating uppercut that laid out Werdum to the surprise of many including Fabricio himself. Now at UFC 95 this Saturday he will get the opportunity to show everyone that his win over Werdum wasn’t a fluke and that he is a fighter all other UFC heavyweights should keep an eye on.
His opponent who is making his UFC debut this Saturday is Stefan Struve (16-2) from Holland and a member of Team Schrijber. Having come from Holland, the first thought would be that Struve is all about kickboxing as Holland has produced some of the most successful K-1 fighters ever with Semmy Schilt, Remy Bonjasky and Ernest Hoost being just a few of the many great kickboxers the country has produced.
