UFC on FUEL: Stefan Struve Stops Dave Herman

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Stefan Struve made it through a difficult first round against Dave Herman at Wednesday night's UFC on FUEL event, then poured it on in the second round, using his ground and pound to win the fight by technical knockout.

It wasn't a great showing for Struve, but it was good enough to get the job done, and he now has a two-fight winning streak and a 23-5 overall record.

The first round had the fans booing, as both fighters looked a little tentative on their feet. But Herman landed the more effective punches, getting inside, connecting and then backing away, and Struve failed to use his reach advantage effectively.

Struve started the second round with a great takedown directly into mount, but Herman did a nice job of bucking Struve off and getting back to his feet. Standing up Struve began to land more effectively, with punches getting through and doing damage to Herman's face. Eventually Struve knocked Herman down, got on top of him in full mount, and pounded away at his face until the referee stopped the fight.

The loss drops Herman to 21-3 in his MMA career.
