Stefan Struve Cleared By Doctors For UFC Return
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.08.2014



In an interview with USA Today (via MMA Junkie), Stefan Struve (25-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) said that he has been cleared by doctors to return to the UFC.

On getting clearance: "I'm just working on the last details with the UFC right now for my clearance. They've got everything my doctor's letter, medical files and everything. Everything is there, and we're just waiting on the UFC to do their thing."

On his leaking aortic valve causing his hiatus: "The chamber where the aortic valve is connected is the left chamber of your heart, and that chamber was a lot bigger than it was supposed to be. A lot of that was the high blood pressure. Now they treated me for it with blood pressure medicine, and it got smaller. Because of that, the opening where the valve is got smaller, too. Normally, when the chamber gets bigger, like often happens with athletes, the valve gets bigger, too, so that it closes. But in my case, the opening got bigger and the valve didn't grow, so the leakage got worse and worse. But now, it's smaller again and the valve closes better."

On being better now: "My body was only functioning at 60 or 70 percent. Because of that, my body was way more prone to viruses and all that, so I got sick a lot. It was horrible. But I'm back. I left a year behind me that was the most difficult year of my life, but now I'm here. I'm back, and I want to fight. I want to show that I'm one of the best heavyweights in the world. I really feel like I've got another shot at all of this and I'm better than I've ever been."
