Skyscraper is definitely getting the highs as he's slated to face Big Sexy at the upcoming UFC 124. Aside from GSP and Kos, Struve and McCorkle will surely make the night big time.

A week after Stefan Struve was awarded with a new four fight deal with UFC, Skyscraper is set to get back in Montreal to face Sean McCorkle at UFC 124.

During his time in UFC, Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve got a 4-2 record at 22 years old. Struve got his knockout victory over Christian Morecraft at UFC 117 after a first round struggle. Sean “Big Sexy” McCorkle, meanwhile, is a good prospect with his impressive 10-0 mark. Big Sexy took advantage to make a UFC debut in his home-state, Indiana, and won a first round submission over Mark Hunt. And it looks like McCorkle has a tall test, literally and figuratively, in front of him.

Can McCorkle get pass the Skyscraper? Or will Struve mar Big Sexy’s record for the first time?
