David Terrell will be returning to the octagon in November to face Ed Herman at UFC 78 in New Jersey.
Terrell has been a professional MMA fighter since 1999 but has fought just 8 times over the span winning 6 of his bouts. By defeating Matt Lindland at UFC 49 in his UFC debut Terrell received a shot at the vacant middleweight title against Evan Tanner at UFC 51 in early 2005. Despite a strong display early in the first round Terrell lost the bout by TKO late in the first. He returned to the UFC more than a year later to defeat Scott Smith by submission at UFC 59 but has not fought since.
Herman holds a 13-5 MMA record. He appeared on the third season of The Ultimate Fighter fighting his way to the finals where he was defeated by Kendall Grove. Despite the loss his performance earned him a UFC contract. In his first fight after the finale he was defeated by Jason MacDonald but hs bounced back with wins over Chris Price and Scott Smith in his last two UFC bouts.
