Official: UFC confirms Struve vs Miocic for Nottingham headliner


The UFC has confirmed that the upcoming Nottingham, UK show will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between Stevan Struve and Stipe Miocic.

Bout agreements have been signed for the meet, making the fight official.

Struve goes into the fight off the back of a three-fight win streak over Lavar Johnson, Dave Herman and Pat Barry. All three wins came inside the distance.

Miocic is 3-0 in the UFC after earning a TKO win over Shane Del Rosario at UFC 146 last month. He stopped Phil De Fries in his preceding bout and took a decision over Joey Beltran before that.

Also confirmed for the card is bantamweight title hopeful Brad Pickett. He faces Canadian fighter Yves Jabouin, 3-1 in the UFC and with a striking style that matches well with Pickett’s own fondness for standing.
