UFC 107: Paul Buentello vs Stefan Struve booked, Todd Duffee hurt

by Jesse Holland | source: mmamania.com

Towering up-and-coming heavyweight Stefan Struve (18-3) has officially taken over for the injured Todd Duffee in a bid to throw hands with Paul Buentello (27-10) at UFC 107: “Penn vs. Sanchez” from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn., on Dec. 12.

His contract was one of many picked from the rubble by Zuffa following Affliction’s demise and his experience inside the Octagon (and out) makes him an immediate factor in this division.

In fact, over his past 13 fights, Buentello has only dropped two contests — one was for a shot at Andrei Arlovski’s UFC heavyweight title back at UFC 55 and the other was at the hands of Alistair Overeem for Strikeforce in November 2007.

But don’t expect the surging Dutchman Stefan Struve to be impressed by any of that.

 Struve's looked great and is improving for an up and comer.  Could definitely steal this if Burrito Man doesn't bring his A game. Speaking of which, mexican food sounds good tonight...... Most likely see Belcher/Gouveia free on Spike or this fight instead, so all good either way.  And Cre you do know that injuries led to this fight right?  Not lack of depth?  Got a number of HW's right now already tied up in fights, just fought, or are injured/sick.
