The UFC has added a second heavyweight bout to UFC 193, and The Skyscraper is going to fight in a stadium. Promotion officials recently announced that a bout between Stefan Struve and Jared Rosholt will take place at UFC 193 on November 15th.

Struve (26-7, 10-5 UFC) is coming off a decision win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 190 in August. He had been out with a genetic heart defect for over a year before that. Eight of his ten wins in the UFC have come by knockout or submission.

Rosholt (13-2, 5-1 UFC) picked up an underwhelming decision win over Timothy Johnson at a UFC Fight Night event in Nashville last month. He has won five of his six UFC fights, but has only finished one of them.

UFC 193 takes place in Etihad Stadium in Melbourne. The UFC is hoping to break their attendance record with the event, which will be headlined by a UFC welterweight title fight between champion Robbie Lawler and challenger Carlos Condit.
