EL SEGUNDO, CA -- Bleacher Report MMA had the opportunity to hang out with Stefan Struve as he prepared for his UFC 117 bout, which is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 7 in Oakland, CA.

The Dutch heavyweight had just finished a session with Vladimir Matyushenko and Antoni Hardonk before he spoke with B/R.  

Though his prediction about Matyushenko's performance might not have been completely accurate, Struve talked about his plans for UFC 117, what he thinks of his opponent and how he plans to finish the fight.
