The UFC continues to round out the line-up for the promotion’s upcoming, July 27th, UFC on FOX 8 event, as a middleweight bout between Ed Herman and Strikeforce vet Trevor Smith has been added to the card.
Herman (20-9) will be looking to rebound from a submission loss he suffered versus jiu-jitsu star “Jacare” Souza in January, which took place under the Strikeforce banner. Prior to that Herman dropped a unanimous decision loss to Jake Shields at UFC 150, however, Shields tested positive for a banned substance and the fight was declared a no contest.
Smith (10-3) is also coming off a submission loss to one of Strikeforce’s top middleweights, as he was tapped out by Tim Kennedy at the same event in January. The veteran fighter has gone 3-2 in his last 5 fights.
The July 27th, UFC on FOX 8 will be hosted by the Key Arena in Seattle, and will feature flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson taking on John Moraga in the main event.
