UFC heavyweight Sean McCorkle was victorious in his promotional debut when he submitted MMA veteran Mark Hunt in the opening frame at UFC 119. He will now be taking another step up the heavyweight ladder when he faces off against the 6-foot-11 Stefan “Skyskraper” Struve at UFC 124 in Montreal, Canada.
MMAjunkie.com learned that the two fighters have agreed to the bout. It is unknown whether Struve vs. McCorkle will be on the evening’s pay-per view card or the unaired preliminary card.
UFC 124 features a main even that will put this season’s coaches of The Ultimate Fighter — Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck — against each other for the UFC welterweight crown.
