UFC Fight Night 145: Blachowicz vs Santos is coming up and is set to take place in the Czech Republic in Prague. Also known as UFC on ESPN+3, the entire card is full of some of the best fighters currently signed to the UFC.

While the main event will see Jan Blachowicz and Thiago Santos face each other in a possible Title eliminator fight, the co-main event will also see two of the most underrated UFC fighters square off. Stefan Struve will take on Marcos Rogerio de Lima in the fight.

Stefan Struve hasn't had the best run in recent times, with three back-to-back losses to his name in his three last fights. Struve has been expecting things to go his way when he faces Marcos Rogerio de Lima, and he is hoping to pick up the win.

Before his fight at UFC Prague, I had the chance to catch up with him and ask him a couple of questions.

Tune in to Sony Six and Sony Six HD to catch all the action from UFC Prague at 12:30 AM on the 24th of February.

Q. What’s the preparation like before this upcoming fight and how are you intending to get that win?

SS: It’s been good. I’ve been back home and had a great camp. I’m very happy with how it went. I did lots of hard rounds. I’m feeling great and ready.

Q. If there was one fight you would say is the greatest of your career so far, which would it be?

SS: There are multiple fights, not just one. Miocic is a great win, beating Nogueira in Rio is great and knocking out Bigfoot in Rotterdam. Also, my first win where I came back to win. I’ve had tons of great fights in the UFC.
