You Brits are so spoiled.

According to Gareth Davies, UFC on FUEL TV 5, which is scheduled to go down this coming Sept. 29, 2012, at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England, now has its main event.

And it's a doozy.

Fresh off their respective stoppage victories over Lavar Johnson and Shane Del Rosario at UFC 146, respectively, Stefan Struve and Stipe Miocic will meet up for a heavyweight tussle headlining the promotion's next venture overseas.


As stated previously, Struve easily disposed of Lavar Johnson at UFC 146, submitting the burly brawler in just over one minute. Miocic, meanwhile, took one round longer to settle up with Shane Del Rosario but that's exactly what he did, stopping the Strikeforce import via strikes.

This would seem to be solid matchmaking but is it worthy of a main event? And are you English folk happy with it as your headliner?

UFC on FUEL TV 5 goes down on Sept. 29 with Struve vs. Miocic at the top of the card. Other bouts announced include a bantamweight battle pitting Brad Pickett vs. Yves Jabouin and a featherweight fracas that will see the Octagon debut of Andy Ogle against Akira Corassani.

As usual, stay tuned to for more on this still developing fight card. And for all the latest news and notes on UFC on FUEL TV 5 click here.
