Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, move over - there's a new adrenaline junkie in town. UFC heavyweight veteran Stefan Struve announced his plans to dive into shark-infested waters after facing Jared Rosholt at UFC 193.

"Skyscraper" will be heading to Port Lincoln, Australia, where he'll be locked in an underwater cage surrounded by sharks.

Struve spoke of his thrill-seeking adventure to MMAJunkie earlier today.

"You're missing the most important thing," Struve said. "I'm going to be in a cage. It's something I've always wanted to do," he said. "I've always been intrigued with sharks, and just getting in there and seeing those things in their habitat, coming at you, with a cage."

The Dutch heavyweight will have to deal with Jared Rosholt coming at him inside the UFC's Octagon on Saturday at Ethiad Stadium in Melbourne, for one of the biggest PPV's of the year.

Struve, 27, will look to string two back-to-back wins together and propel into the upper echelon of the HW division with a win over Rosholt. Struve and Rosholt will kick the main card off at UFC 193 on Saturday, November 15th.
