Stefan Struve Broken Jaw X-RayStefan Struve, just six weeks removed from suffering a broken jaw, is already back in the gym.

Not only has the seven-foot-tall UFC heavyweight started training again, he’s also got an eye out for his return to the Octagon.

“6 weeks after having surgery on my jaw I had my 1st full contact mma training tonight, it went GREAT!” Struve exclaimed Tuesday night on Twitter. “Aiming to be back in a couple months!”

It’s somewhat surprising that Struve has already returned to full-contact training considering the nature of the break he suffered.

Heavyweight contender Mark Hunt broke Struve’s jaw in the third round of their UFC on Fuel TV 8 bout on March 3 in Japan. Hunt landed a perfectly timed left hook that sent Struve crashing to the canvas and then off to the hospital.

The loss ended Struve’s four-fight winning streak and dashed his dream of jumping into the heavyweight title talk.

At just 25 years of age, Struve already has 13 UFC bouts to his credit – winning nine and losing four – so he has plenty of time to get back into the mix. But it sounds like he’s already chomping at the bit to do so.
