The two heavyweight headliners for this Saturday's FUEL TV broadcast went face-to-face today in Nottingham.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicked off its traditional pre-fight press conference earlier today (Sept. 27, 2012) for the upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 5 event, which emanates from the Capital FM Arena in this Saturday (Sept. 29) in Nottingham, England.

"Struve vs. Miocic" will feature a heavyweight headliner pitting 265-pound "Skyscraper" Stefan Struve against undefeated top prospect Stipe Miocic in the main event of the evening. The winner takes one step closer to getting "in the mix" while the loser goes to the back of the line.

And judging by their face off, neither man is prepared to go down without a fight.

Elsewhere on the card, longtime welterweight warrior Dan Hardy will try to put on a show for his hometown fans by disposing of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 winner Amir Sadollah. They also went nose to nose today (sort of) after the FUEL press conference.
