Heavyweights Chase Gormley and Stefan Struve are set to fight at UFC 104 on October 24 in Los Angeles, according to Fighters Only, which reports that bout agreements have been signed for the matchup.
Gormley had been set to fight Ben Rothwell on the UFC 104 preliminary card, a bout originally scheduled for the canceled Affliction: Trilogy event on August 1, but after Shane Carwin was pulled from a UFC 104 matchup with Cain Velasquez to instead fight heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar at UFC 106 in November, Rothwell was tapped to fight Velasquez on the event’s main card.
Gormley (6-0), an NAIA All-American Wrestler, has won all 6 of his professional fights, most-recently fighting at MFC 16 in May 2008, defeating Eric Pele via unanimous decision.
Struve (17-3) suffered a first-round TKO to Junior dos Santos in February in his UFC debut, but bounced back with a second-round submission of Denis Stojnic in June despite suffering a large gash on his head that left him bleeding profusely.
