A middleweight clash between 'Ultimate Fighter' finalist Ed Herman and Strikeforce veteran Trevor Smith has been added to July's UFC on Fox 8 event in Seattle, Washington.
Smith makes his UFC debut after dropping two straight performances for the now defunct Strikeforce promotion. Most recently he was submitted by Tim Kennedy after being TKO'd by Gian Villante. To his credit, Smith did pick up a win against Alexandre Moreno during a stint on the local circuit between the two losses.
Herman most recently dropped a lopsided battle against former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza during the promotion's final event in January. This after falling to Jake Shields at UFC 150, although that bout was later ruled a no contest following a failed post-fight drug screening from Shields.
