Instead of a planned matchup with former champ Frank Mir, Brendan Schaub will face fellow heavyweight prospect Stefan Struve at UFC on Versus 3 on March 3 in Louisville, according to Showdown Joe.
Schaub (7-1) topped Gabriel Gonzaga in October for his third-straight UFC win after coming up short against Roy Nelson in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 10 and quickly called out Mir after the victory.
Struve (21-4) stopped Sean McCorkle in the UFC 124 co-main event earlier this month for his second-straight win and fifth in six fights.
UFC on Versus 3 is headlined by Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann and also includes Alessio Sakara vs. Maiquel Falcao and CB Dollaway vs. Mark Munoz
Could a rubber match between Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar be back on possibly after the rivals coach The Ultimate Fighter 13?
