Following his Performance of the Night submission of de Lima in Prague earlier this year, the Netherlands' Struve flirted with retirement, but this December, the 31-year-old "Skyscraper" will return to the Octagon to battle fellow veteran standout Rothwell, who looks to snap a three-fight losing streak in D.C.
