UFC Hamburg has an interesting heavyweight barn burner as #13 ranked veteran Stefan ‘The Skyscraper’ Struve taked on #9 ranked Marcin ‘Tybur’ Tybura.

Struve (28-10 MMA, 12-8 UFC) showed early promise and a championship material especially with a win over former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic. However he has struggled with consistency and has not performed as per his potential.

That being said, the 7-feet Dutch, is definitely a better fighter than his record suggests. He will look to snap a two-fight losing streak against Tybura who is also on a two-fight losing streak. Struve who has equal number of victories with knockout and submission (5) will have to use every ounce of his well rounded skill set to get that important victory.

However giving his best is not a first for the 20 fight UFC veteran as he recalls his sophomore fight where he registered his first victory with the UFC back in 2009. (via Twitter):

Struve entered the octagon with a loss against Junior Dos Santos on his debut. He faced a lot of adversity which had him in a bloody mess and still to get his hand raised. The MMA community expects the same from Struve this weekend at UFC Hamburg.
