Stefan Struve Broken Jaw X-RayMark Hunt is known for his punching power and he added evidence to that claim at UFC on Fuel TV 8 with a knockout win over Stefan Struve, breaking Struve’s jaw in the process.

The news of Stuve’s broken jaw was confirmed during the UFC on Fuel TV 8: Silva vs. Stann post-show on Fuel TV.

Struve, the seven-foot tall heavyweight, was unable to keep the much shorter Hunt on the outside.  Struve was expected to have an advantage on the ground against the former kickboxer, but Hunt showed he’s been working on his ground game.

Hunt held his own, and then some, on the ground with Struve, but it was his striking that proved to be the difference.

Early in the third round, Hunt landed a right hand to the temple and a left hook immediately followed.  The hook caught Struve flush on the jaw as he was moving away.  Hunt walked away, knowing the fight was over.  Referee Herb Dean then moved in and realized Struve was in no condition to continue and stopped the fight.

“Thanks for the support everybody. I wanted Herb (Dean) to take the tooth out of my cheek and continue, but then it turned out my jaw was broken,” said Struve on Twitter following the event.

The knockout extended Hunt’s winning streak to four, ending Struve’s four-fight run.
