UFC Heavyweight Heath Herring,

“I’ve been trying to get into acting a little bit; it’s actually been taking off. I’ve got a bunch of different movies lined up. Don’t have anything signed just yet, but you know, the film industry is kind of like the fight industry, there’s always rumors, but things always seem to fall in place afterwards. I don’t have anything scheduled right now with the UFC. Like I said, this acting stuff is kind of taking off, I’ve got some other things going on. I’m really not in a big hurry to jump back in there right now. I’m kind of riding this wave and seeing where it’s going to take me…It’s not that I’m not really happy with the UFC … It’s just, you know, like I said, I think that last fight just took a lot out of me. Now with acting, and things kind of taking off, it just left a bad taste in my mouth. And not necessarily with the UFC. Just with the training … you know, some of my trainers and things like that. I think I just needed a little time to step back and maybe do some other things for a little bit. [Fanhouse]

The Texas Crazy Horse recently started in the MMA action flick “Never Surrender” with fellow fighters BJ Penn, GSP and Anderson Silva. Herring seems unmotivated to get back in the cage after his UFC 87 loss to current UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Having not fought in over a year, Herring was scheduled to take on Cain Velasquez at UFC 99, but pulled out of the fight due to a bad case of bronchitis.
