Walking tall.

Super-sized UFC heavyweights Stefan Struve and Sean McCorkle are in agreement to hook 'em up at UFC 124 on Dec. 11 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

MMA Weekly brought word of the pending match-up earlier today.

"Skyscraper" has been on a roller coaster ride since his UFC debut, when the towering Dutchman was beaten senseless by top heavyweight contender Junior Dos Santos.

Struve answered the third loss of his career by stringing together three victories in a row, submitting both Dennis Stojnic and Chase Gormley, then besting Paul Buentello in a majority decision. The lanky striker was on a roll before running into Roy Nelson, who knocked him silly him in 39 seconds.

Struve bounced back from the loss by defeating previously unbeaten Christian Morecraft in a come from behind knockout.

McCorkle made waves at UFC 119 by submitting K-1 legend and MMA veteran Mark Hunt.

The undefeated heavyweight known as "Big Sexy" is 10-0 in his career with seven of those wins ending in the first round.

Only one has gone the distance.

UFC 124 will feature a rematch between division champion Georges St. Pierre and fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 coach Josh Koscheck. "Rush" claimed a unanimous decision win over "Kos" when they first met at UFC 74: "Respect" in Aug. 2007.
