In a post on Twitter, Stefan Struve said that when he blacked out at UFC 175, it had nothing to do with the heart condition that he's had for eight months. He was set to fight Matt Mitrione, but it was called off due to the incident. He has bicuspid aortic valve. He's currently getting treatment that includes monitored workouts, blood pressure medication and dietary changes.
What happened had nothing to do with my heart. But everything that has happened left mental scare that I really underestimated.
