Struve stops Herman in the 2nd round with a technical knockout

by Steven Marrocco and John Morgan | source:

After a slow start and a lost round, Stefan Struve came alive against Dave Herman and took control of his fight with effective striking combinations.

A second-round TKO victory gave Struve his second consecutive win, which came in in the co-main event of UFC on FUEL TV 1.

Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb., played host, and the bout aired live on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook.

For two heavyweights with handfuls of finishes on their respective resumes, Struve and Herman took their time getting started. The two stood virtually still for the first minute of the fight. Herman attacked the legs to set the pace, and Struve responded with a head kick that was blocked.

I've seen far worse stoppages, but almost none of those punches were landing.  Another 10 seconds and Struve probably would've punched himself out.

good enough stoppage, but Struve got a gimme....shit, Bonnar and Griffen are bigger than Herman. Dave Herman could be tough at LHW....

 The stoppage was fine Herman looked good but I think the size disparity finally caught up to him

You're incorrectHerman wasn't doing anything when asked to fight back and only attempted to get up when he knew the fight was stopped.
