Ed Herman Replaces Tom Lawlor, Faces Kyle Noke at UFC on Versus 5

Ed Herman has replaced an injured Tom Lawlor and will face fellow middleweight Kyle Noke on the UFC on Versus 5 fight card on August 14 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, UFC Australia announced Friday.

Herman (20-7) is fresh off a 48-second knockout of Tim Credeur in June for his second win in three bouts, while the Australian Noke (19-4-1) snagged the “Submission of the Night” on Chris Camozzi at UFC 127 to improve to 3-0 in the UFC.

Both fighters appeared on The Ultimate Fighter, as Herman was the runner-up to Kendall Grove on TUF 3 in 2006 and Noke advanced to the quarterfinals on TUF 11 last year.

UFC on Versus 5 is headlined by welterweightsDan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle and lightweight contender Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson.
