Stefan Struve plans to bulk up to 290 pounds before rematching Roy Nelson and Junior dos Santos

November 16, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

UFC heavyweight skyscraper, Stefan Struve has been speaking about his goal of bulking up over the next couple of years to a massive 290 pounds before rematching the two men to defeat him inside the octagon, Roy Nelson and Junior dos Santos.

Speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, Struve said:

“Well, I only turned 21 a few days before the fight. I was at 235 I believe and if you see these guys running round, well.. Dos Santos is a beast. I need more muscle and more power, but that will come in the next couple of years. I would like to have a rematch with Roy and Dos Santos at some point in my career to see if I did improve. I am pretty sure I did. I want to go up to 290 to see what trouble I give them. Right now I weigh 255 so its going good.”

“I see myself giving the fans entertaining fights and the UFC can put me anywhere they want, they can have me fight anybody and I will fight him and put on a good show. Its not like I want a title shot as soon as possible – I am 22. I am trying to improve my game with every fight and I am doing that so far. I have, in my opinion, 15 to 18 years of competition ahead of me and I am loving my job. I couldn’t be more thankful for the way things are going.”

Struve then turned his attentions to his UFC 124 opponent, Sean McCorkle, a fighter that’s spent a great deal of his time on The Underground forum talking trash about the towering Dutchman.

“I don’t really care about what he has been saying to me. He got me focused and… I think he is a funny dude. That’s all. Its gonna be a good fight and I am probably gonna knock him out. I am pretty sure I am going to stop him.”

“I’ve seen his fights before [he joined] the UFC and I am not impressed with his fights at all. He won against Mark Hunt but Mark Hunt had lost his last six fights, so… its like, you can go 40-0 by beating guys who are 5-40, you know? You can go on forever but now he is in the big league so he is in trouble.”

Struve is coming off an impressive second round TKO win over Christian Morecraft at UFC 117 in August. Prior to that he’d had a three-fight winning streak snapped when he went down early at the hands of “Ultimate Fighter” season ten winner, Roy Nelson.

As for McCorkle, this monster cut down from his natural 320 pound frame to make the 265 pound limit to take on veteran Mark Hunt at UFC 119 last month. He was taken down early in the fight but managed to secure a sickening kimura which snapped the former K-1 stars arm.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
