Stefan Struve had his four fight win streak snapped at UFC on FUEL TV 8 when he was defeated by Mark Hunt in the third round by knockout. Hunt landed a left hook that ended the fight and Struve went to Twitter to say he was heading to the hospital with a broken jaw.
Thanks for the support everybody, I wanted Herb to take the tooth out of my cheek and continue but then it turned out my jaw was broken..
45 minutes to the hospital without painkillers.. Man, please choke me out.. Jaw is hurting like crazy.. 🙁
