UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort UFC on Fuel TV: Struve vs. Miocic UFC on FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot

UFC on Fuel TV: Struve vs. Miocic (also known as UFC on Fuel TV 5) was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on September 29, 2012 at Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, United Kingdom.[2]


Jörgen Kruth was expected to make his UFC debut against Fabio Maldonado at this event. However, Kruth dropped out of the fight to retire from mixed martial arts. As a result, Maldonado was pulled from the event and faced Glover Teixeira at UFC 153.[3]

Pascal Krauss was expected to face promotional newcomer Gunnar Nelson at the event. However, Krauss was forced out of the bout with an injury and Nelson was briefly linked to fight with Rich Attonito in a catchweight bout to be contested at 175 lbs.[4] However, Attonito had reservations about taking the short notice bout due to the weight cut requirements. DaMarques Johnson was slated to take on Nelson at catch weight 175 lbs,[5] but DaMarques missed the weight by 8 lbs. while Gunnar weighted at 175 lbs. Gunnar agreed to fight DaMarques nevertheless.[6]
