UFC 222 Gets A Big Fight Between Heavyweight Veterans

The UFC announced today that UFC 222 in Las Vegas will get a matchup between some UFC Heavyweight veterans.

Former UFC Heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski will be taking on the Dutchman, Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve.

The last time each fighter fought there were opposite results. For the 7’0″ Struve, he was last seen in his homeland for the main event of UFC Fight Night 115 where he took on Alexander Volkov. It was a very fun, back and forth fight while it lasted but it was Volkov who wound up getting the better of Struve when he finished him by round three TKO. This loss snapped Struve’s impressive two-fight win streak. Throughout his career, we’ve seen him have troubles with staying consistent in terms of getting on a good, long winning streak. But Struve has never had trouble hanging around the division’s best and delivering in entertaining fights. Despite his recent loss, he’s still showing improvements and is only twenty-nine years old.
