"I should have tried to get up more off bottom. I just had a hard time moving. He was real tight game on top, good position, it was just hard for me to get moving and attacking. I'm pretty disappointed. I feel like I didn't fight the way that I can. I'm sorry to the fans and I'm sorry to the UFC. I really feel like I let everybody down."

-- Ed Herman's comeback from a brutal knee injury was an inspirational story that had to come to an end at some point. It's just too bad it had to happen like this. "Short Fuse" had won three consecutive fights and was working his way back up the ranks of the 185-pound division before running into Jake Shields, who was making his return to the weight class after an unsuccessful run at welterweight. After three rounds and 15 minutes last night (Sat., Aug. 11, 2012) at UFC 150 in Denver, Colorado, Herman had turned in one of the worst performances of his career, allowing Shields to work his game on the way to a unanimous decision win. But not only did he lose, he did so in a manner that left fans booing him just minutes after they had been cheering him upon introductions. Back to the drawing board. Hear more from Herman on why and how things went south after the jump.
