UFC 78: Dave Terrell vs. Ed Herman

dave terrell ed herman
Dave Terrell (6-2) will return to the Octagon to fight Ed Herman (13-5) in a middleweight bout during UFC 78 on November 17 at the Prudential Arena in Newark, N.J., according to MMAWeekly.com.

Terrell burst onto the scene in his UFC debut in 2004, knocking out Matt Lindland just 24 seconds into their bout at UFC 49. The upset earned him a shot at the middleweight title, which was vacated by Murilo Bustamante.

"The Soul Assassin" lost that championship bout to Evan Tanner via technical knockout at UFC 51 in 2005. Terrell — a jiu-jitsu student of Cesar Gracie — would fight just one more time after the loss to Tanner, submitting Scott Smith with a rear naked choke at UFC 59 in 2006.

He hasn't had a fight since that time.

That's because injuries have plagued Terrell for the better part of his career -- he has been forced to withdraw from several fights. In fact, we recently passed along news that he would return at 205 pounds (rather than the 185-pound limit) to avoid getting hurt.

Herman -- a middleweight finalist during the third season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) -- is on a two fight win streak. He has stopped Chris Price and Scott Smith via submissions since losing to Jason MacDonald and Kendall Grove.
