The UFC’s annual Super Bowl weekend card just got a little deeper with the addition of a middleweight contest between Ed Herman and Clifford Starks.
UFC officials announced the bout just moments ago.
UFC 143 is set to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on Super Bowl weekend. Georges St. Pierre was originally scheduled to headline the event against the newest title challenger Nick Diaz, however an injury forced him off the card and Diaz will now face Carlos Condit for the UFC’s interim welterweight title.
The Ultimate Fighter runner up, Ed Herman, recently returned to action after a near two year layoff from competition due to injuries. In his welcome home bout he was handed the always tough Tim Credeur, blasted through him and most recently took on and submitted Kyle Noke at “UFC Live: Hardy vs. Lytle” this past August.
Starks is an undefeated fighter with an Arizona State Wrestling pedigree. He recently made his UFC debut at UFC 137 and successfully took out Dustin Jacoby with a unanimous decision victory.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
