In the meantime, after earning a "Fight of the Night" win over the previously undefeated Stipe Miocic at Saturday night's UFC on FUEL TV 5 event, Struve has another name in mind: Fabricio Werdum.

"Werdum would be an awesome fight for my next fight," Struve told MMAjunkie.com. "I think I can cope with him on the ground, and I think I can rough him up on the feet."

"I'm 24," Struve said. "Imagine what I can do in four years or five years."

I'd watch that fight. Both guys are in a similar place within the division. Phone Post

How do you figure? Werdum has multiple big wins in his career and has been running through guys who KO'd Struve

At 35 Werdum needs big fights at this point of his career not fringe guys like Struve. Werdum should fight someone like Cormier or Mir next

This Struve hype is bizarre to me, am I watching the same fighter as these people? He's a damn exciting fighter and I love watching him fight, but he will struggle any time he's with a true top Heavy

After seeing Werdum whip Big Country, I don't think Struve should want this fight.

But who knows, Struve surprises me every time he fights...

Werdum easily has the most underrated striking in the HW division.  I like Struve, but he ain't ready for that jelly.

Werdum whips his ass anywhere the fight goes. Werdum is the most underrated heavy in the UFC. Strudel thinks he can hang with him on the ground?? Hopefully we dont get to find out as Werdum deserves a bigger fight.

Struves a fight away from being punch drunk, no telling what's going to happen. Against werdum, struve has the cardio advantage, could be a decent fight, if it goes a few rounds.

Awesomestprimedmybung - "Stipe is going to run through Struve, this is basically a show case fight for Miocic....he's a future HW champ."
Definitely was not me who said that.... Phone Post

I think the fight makes sense. Struve's won his last 4, and just finished off a tough prospect. Werdum looks like he's a win or two away from a title shot, and the top guys (Junior, Cain, and Alistair) are all tied up until sometime next year. I'd love to see this fight on the New Years card.

Werdum needs a bigger fight. Like to see him against another top veteran like Barnett or Mir

interesting fight. Struve's comments were taken out of context slightly. The interviewer asked whether he would like to fight someone like Werdum, and Struve responded. No point did he ask for Werdum specifically, but I guess that doesn't make news...
