That was fast.
Just hours after Dave Herman was no longer labeled as "Pee Weed," it was announced that he'd been booked to throw hands opposite Stefan Struve at the upcoming UFC on Fuel TV 1 event, which is scheduled to take place at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb., on Feb. 15, 2012.
MMA Weekly brought word of the heavyweight tilt on Nov. 30.
Herman (20-2) made his Octagon debut at UFC 131: "Dos Santos vs. Carwin" back on June 11, pounding out fellow ZUFFA debutante Jon Olav Einemo at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Now he's back (again) and ready to take out his frustrations on the "Skyscraper."
The win over "HD" pushed the lanky Dutchman to 6-3 inside the Octagon and a win over a veteran like Herman would go a long way in getting him back "in the mix."
