Brendan Schaub vs. Stefan Struve Targeted for UFC on Versus 3

New, comments

Although earlier reports suggested that Brendan Schaub and Frank Mir had agreed to face off in a heavyweight bout this March, it's now looking like the UFC has other plans for Mir, as they've replaced him with Stefan Struve, according to Sportsnet's Joe Ferraro:

It appears as though Brendan "The Hybrid" Schaub's request to take on Frank Mir will have to wait. A source has confirmed that the UFC has decided to replace Mir with Stefan "The Skyscraper" Struve.

This bout has not been made official by the organization but it looks as though the two stud heavyweights will tangle on UFC's Mar. 3 free television show.

UFC on Versus 3 , which airs live on March 3rd from Louisville, Kentucky, now includes:

Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann
Brendan Schaub vs. Stefan Struve
C.B. Dollaway vs. Mark Munoz
Maiquel Falcao vs. Alessio Sakara
Rousimar Palhares vs. Alexandre "Cacareco" Ferreira
Brian Bowles vs. Damacio Page
Takeya Mizugaki vs. Francisco Rivera
