Stefan Stuve ended a three-fight losing streak tonight at UFC Prague, but afterward, the Dutch heavyweight said today could have marked his last appearance in the Octagon.

Moments into the fight, de Lima chucked a big overhand right that sent Struve to the deck. De Lima followed Struve down and landed multiple shots from above, as he held the top position for some time. As the opening round came to an end, de Lima had moved into mount.

De Lima came pressuring to the open round two, and pushed Struve to the fence, but the latter took him to the mat with a nice trip. From there, Struve controlled the position and moved into a fight ending, arm-triangle-choke. After the win, Struve, whose career was sidelined by a heart condition previously, reported he’s strongly considering retirement.
