The heavyweight division gained a new contender on Saturday.
Stefan Struve has been overlooked throughout his UFC career due to early knockout losses to Junior dos Santos and Roy Nelson, but now that he’s riding a four-fight win streak following a huge win over Stipe Miocic at UFC on Fuel 5, it’s time to realize that Struve is the real deal.
Also on the rise is former welterweight title contender Dan Hardy, who used a fired-up hometown Nottingham crowd to get past a game Amir Sadollah in the co-main event.
After hitting rock bottom just over a year ago, Hardy’s stock has finally started to recover from the massive hit it took during his four-fight losing streak.
With UFC on Fuel 5 in the books, here’s a quick look at some top fighters from the card and their post-fight stock reports.
