A fairly terrible main event, whats the point of a five round format if you are going to put Stefan Struve up against a finisher like Miocic. This is either going to be a quick sub by Struve or a brutal KO by Miocic likely in the first round. My hope is that the injury big takes Miocic out and we get Cheick Kongo in this main event. Five rounds of Struve/Kongo that would be an f'n fight, Struve's grappling vs Kongo's clinch work, both men with weak chins but solid boxing.

I suppose they are thinking what's one more title contender for the HW division give Stipe a chance to fight for five rounds. But if they are going to do that give him Travis Browne, Ben Rothwell, or Mark Hunt...guys that won't break in a damn round.

He's got huge amounts of potential and once he beefs up he'll be an even bigger threat in the standing department or on the ground.

He can't quite seem to breakthrough yet to contendership status.
Reminds me of Rousimar Palhares too, I think it just shows these guys are in reality, middle of the pack fighters for whatever reason.

Struve isn't a main eventer and Miocic isn't as known yet so as a main event, no. As for the fight itself though, i love it.

Should answer some questions about Miocic again.

I agree. I like the fight itself, but this headliner won't sell the card imo.

Good for Struve, he's deserved it.

Although if this is a PPV it probably won't sell much..

FUEL TV, so no PPV. They would never put such a fight as the main eventer for a PPV.

A Heavyweight fight between two finishers could draw quite well on Fuel so it might work out well.

The fact that it is on Fuel will already push the ratings down. On top of that, the average person isn't going to have a clue in the world as to who either of these guys are.

First UK card I'm not going to since UFC 95. For 40 ($60) I'd go to this regardless of who is on it but at $80 ($120) for the cheapest seats in the house I can't justify it.
I hope Hardy gets a decent fight here.
