As reported on Fighters.com, UFC Heavyweight Stefan Struve has been sidelined indefinitely with a leaking aortic valve and an enlarged heart. Doctors have decided to treat Struve with medications for a few months, and then decide the best course of action from there. In a recent interview UFC President Dana White said that he doesn’t think Struve will ever fight again, but Struve wants you to know you shouldn’t count him out. Struve took to twitter to let everyone know he heard what White was saying, and his response to the quote.
Struve via Twitter:
I DON’T consider retirement as an option, it’s possible 2 come back from this & I’m gonna go for that & make it work! Just so you know
