02:39 PM ET 01.16 | UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve has been out of action since Mark Hunt broke his jaw in March of 2013. While the broken jaw was part of Struve's extended absence, it was a leaking aortic valve that kept Struve out longer than anticipated and put his future in jeopardy. However, Struve recently appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com and said that he plans to return to the octagon. If all goes according to plan, Struve will return to the UFC in early spring. Struve's condition had previously resulted in 30 percent of the blood pumped out of his heart leaking back into his heart, but he has improved and that percentage is now down to 10. According to Struve, his doctor said that the low percentage means he can safely return to fighting.
