TORONTO — The UFC is working on a new main event for next month's Halifax card after Stefan (Skyscraper) Struve was forced to pull out of his scheduled fight with Junior Dos Santos due to a shoulder injury.
It was slated to be the feature bout on the Feb. 19 Fight Night card at Scotiabank Centre.
Struve recently had to undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, a UFC spokesperson said in an email. Organizers are working on finalizing a replacement fight and an update is expected soon.
The seven-foot Struve (32-8) is currently ranked 10th among heavyweight contenders.
The televised show will be the UFC's 23rd in Canada and second in Halifax.
