Scope Out UFC's Stefan Struve Training With Daniel Ghita and Dirty Bob

If you are going to train, you might as well train with the very best, and that is exactly what Stefan Struve is doing for his upcoming fight. A lot of newer fans might not know of the name Dirty Bob Schrijber, but he is a legend of sorts. Bob is a legendary kickboxer from the Netherlands, and one of the more notable transitions into the world of MMA from the Netherlands. His nickname comes from the fact that, well, he has been known to fight a little dirty. From an Axe Kick to the head of a downed Daijiro Matsui in PRIDE to "changing the oil" of a few opponents (I'm not explaining that, google it). Dirty Bob started off strong, but was one of the fighters that come the turn-of-the-century found himself older and at a serious disadvantage when it comes to grappling and reach.

He has been training Stefan Struve for UFC for a while now, and in AFAV's latest video documenting UFC star Stefan Struve's training camp there is a special appearance from K-1 and It's Showtime fighter Daniel Ghita to help drill his stand up. Check it out.

Breaking: Hesdy Gerges is Back on for May 21st

Big news revolving around the world of It's Showtime again, as LiverKick.com confirmed with Simon Rutz this evening that Hesdy Gerges has once again been added to the May 21st Amsterdam card. Rutz then posted publicly on his Facebook that Gerges is innocent (at least that is what It's Showtime and everyone else believes) and that Gerges will be prepared for his fight on May 21.

This is the second time in a row that Hesdy Gerges has run into problems right before a fight, the last time in early March before he fought Daniel Ghita. So Hesdy Gerges vs. Chris Knowles is officially back on now, and hopefully Gerges will be as prepared as he was for Daniel Ghita just a few months ago.

Stay tuned for more updates on It's Showtime as they happen.
