At last Saturday's UFC on FUEL 8 on Saturday, March 2 in Japan, Stefan Struve got his jaw broken by Mark Hunt. He was taken to the hospital in Japan, had his jaw wired shut, and then headed home to Holland for surgery.

He arrived in Holland on Monday, and anticipated surgery Tuesday. When the surgery was delayed until Friday, he described the wait as brutal. Then it was delayed again, for today.

Struve started tweeting from the hospital early Sunday morning:

Stefan Struve ‏@StefanStruve • Sunday, 3 March
Wired my jaw in the hospital here and flying back tomorrow to get surgery as soon as we land monday in Holland, thnx for the great care @ufc

Stefan Struve ‏@StefanStruve • Sunday, 3 March

The good thing for him is his arms are fucking huge and he just needs to learn how to use it better

For those commenting on retirement/never being the same, how about Abraham? That one seemed pretty bad, he came back fine.

Hurts just thinking that last hook landed on an already broken jaw. Phone Post

Ouch, that is really too bad. I feel for Struve having to wait for surgery. I truly wish him the best. I also hope the UFC are taking good care of him. I had to wait for surgery on a badly broken bone for a long time, so I can relate to what he is going through. Hang in there, bro.
