JDS – Struve 2 to main event UFC Fight Night Halifax

The UFC returns to Halifx this coming February with a main event that will have a huge ripple effect on the heavyweight division. Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos will be taking on “The Skyscraper” Stefan Struve in the main event of Fight Night 105.

This will be the second meeting for the two heavyweights and gives Struve a chance to avenge his first UFC loss. The pair met in 2009 where JDS scored a dominant TKO victory in the middle of his ascent up the heavyweight division.

For Dos Santos (18-4) a win could put him in line for another title shot while Struve (28-8) is looking to once again crack the top 10. Taking place February 19, 2017, from the Scotiabank Centre in Halifx, Fight Night 105 could have quite the impact on the heavyweight title picture.

Also included on the fight card are Elias Theodorou (12-1) vs. Cezar Ferreira (12-5), Nordine Taleb (11-3) vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio (24-3), Jack Marshman (21-5) vs. Thiago Santos (13-5), Alessandro Ricci (10-4) vs. Alvaro Herrera (9-4), and Aiemann Zahabi (6-0) vs. Reginaldo Vieira (14-4).
