According to reports, a scintillating heavyweight scrap between Stefan Struve and Sean McCorkle has been added to “UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck II.” The December 11th event takes place inside the Belle Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
MMAJunkie.com confirmed the contest with sources close to the situation late Tuesday night.
Struve owns an impressive 20-4 record and is fresh off a lights out victory over Christian Morecraft at UFC 117. “Skyscraper” has rattled off wins in nine of his last 11 outings. His two losses during that stretch came at the hands of the studly Junior dos Santos and former IFL champ Roy Nelson.
McCorkle, AKA “Big Sexy,” has created quite the following on the MMA UG Forums.

He’s prefect through his first 10 professional fights and has posted devastating finishes in all but one.
The highly anticipated event is headlined by Montreal’s own Georges St-Pierre. The country’s most popular athlete will defend his welterweight strap against Josh Koscheck in the card’s featured attraction.
