Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields has stated a few times since his win over Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 144 that he'd like to move back to 185. Well he's getting his wish, and he's getting a tough opponent in his return to the division - Ed Herman. Dana White tweeted about the UFC 150 bout a little while ago:
As mentioned above, Shields (27-6-1) is coming off a win over former middleweight Akiyama in February. He was 2-2 at 170 in the UFC, but clearly felt that his skills were better suited for 185. Herman has been a beast since he came back from injury, stopping three straight opponents in the first half of their respective bouts. His last win came over Clifford Starks at UFC 143.
