UFC Books Junior Dos Santos – Stefan Struve II
By FCF Staff
The UFC continues to book bouts for its 2017 schedule, and the latest will see Junior Dos Santos fight Stefan Struve for a second time.
The heavyweight contest will headline the UFC’s return to Halifax, Nova Scotia, which will take place on February 19th.
Dos Santos battled Struve back in 2009, and quickly stopped the Dutch fighter. In 2016, Struve (28-8) has earned victories over Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Daniel Omielanczuk. While Dos Santos took on Ben Rothwell in April and earned a unanimous decision win. That bout marked the only time the former champ competed.
Some of the other fights that have been signed for the Halifax card include Elias Theodorou (12-1) vs, Cezar Ferreira (12-5) Nordine Taleb (11-3) vs Santiago Ponzinibbio (24-3) Jack Marshman vs. Thiago Santos (13-5), Alessandro Ricci (10-4) vs. Alvaro Herrera (9-4) and Aiemann Zahabi (6-0) vs. Reginaldo Vieira (14-4).
