Earlier this week, a fan sent out a tweet to Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta petitioning for the 7 foot Struve and French native Kongo to fight at UFC 156. Upon seeing the tweet, Struve expressed interest in the match up.

UFC 156 takes place on February 2 in Las Vegas. The card features a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar.
Struve finds himself on a four-fight winning streak. His last victory came over the previously unbeaten Stipe Miocic this past September.
Meanwhile, Kongo is coming off an underwhelming decision victory over Shawn Jordan. He has won four of his last six contests.
