UFC NEWS – Ed Herman Returns Against Clifford Starks At UFC 143

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.

      You’re just sore GSP isn’t fighting Diaz. Look at this list of bouts.

      Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz (for interim welterweight title)
      Josh Koscheck vs. Mike Pierce
      Roy Nelson vs. Fabricio Werdum
      Renan Barao vs. Scott Jorgensen

      All of these fights are interesting to me especially Roy vs Werdum.

        Are you kidding me?
        Nelson v Werdum sounds really boring.
        this card is weak weaker than the Aldo vs Mendez card..
        NOW ufc Japan is a sick card!
        Edgar v Henderson (title)
        Rampage vs Bader
        Kongo vs Hunt
        Akiyama v Shields
        Pettis v LAuzon
        Gomi vs Sotiropoulus
