UFC 87: Brock Lesnar vs. Heath Herring

Brock Lesnar weigh-in

Former WWE superstar Brock Lesnar will take on “The Texas Crazy Horse” Heath Herring (28-3) at UFC 87 “Seek and Destroy”, August 9 from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The news comes just a day after it was reported that UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman injured his knee and could not compete at UFC 87.

Herring is coming off a huge decision win over UFC up and comer Cheick Kongo at UFC 82 “Pride of a Champion”. In his previous fight at UFC 73, Herring had UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira knocked down and stunned, but let him recover and ending up losing a close decision.
