UFC Heavyweight slugger Todd Duffee burst onto the scene with a record-breaking* knockout of Tim Hague at UFC 102 but has been force to withdraw from his second fight in the Octagon due to injury.
Duffee was scheduled to fight knockout artist Paul Buentello at UFC 107: “Penn vs. Sanchez” later this year and has been training in his new home of Las Vegas. Instead, Buentello will now possibly face towering Stefan Struve. With Struve having an excellent ground game and Buentello always looking to keep things standing, it would prove a classic striker vs. grappler match-up.

Champ B.J. Penn vs. Diego Sanchez (for lightweight title)
