How did these two get here?

Stefan Struve debuted at UFC 95 in London, England, where Junior dos Santos sent him back to the Netherlands crying. Struve rebounded with big wins over sterling heavyweights like Denis Stojnic, Chase Gormley, and Paul Buentello. Then Roy Nelson came along at UFC Fight Night in Charlotte, North Carolina, and sent him back to the Netherlands crying. Struve returned to his winning ways with victories over A-level fighters Christian Morecraft and Sean McCorkle.

Travis Browne rattled off 9 wins in regional promotions -- including KOing UFC reject Abe Wagner -- before making his UFC debut in 2010. Browne pounded out James McSweeney within five minutes. Then found himself with a blemish on his ledger when Cheick Kongo tugged his way to a draw.

Why should you watch?

For those tall fighters out there, you'll want to watch Struve as an example of how not to fight to your height.
