Default Herring vs Velasquez Agreed To For UFC 99

HERRING VS VELASQUEZ AGREED TO FOR UFC 99

Quote:
American Kickboxing Academy heavyweight Cain Velasquez will move up another rung on the UFC heavyweight division ladder when he faces longtime veteran Heath Herring at UFC 99.

Sources close to the fight told MMAWeekly.com that the fighters had agreed to face each other at the UFC’s German debut on June 13, though bout agreements have yet to be signed.

Herring, 30, was last seen at UFC 87, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to now-heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar. In the first punch of the fight, Lesnar floored Herring with a right hand that sent him end over end, and proceeded to dominate the veteran over three rounds.

In a post on his official Facebook profile, Herring said the punch fractured his left orbital and he needed six months to recover. In recent months, he has returned to training at the Warrior Training Center in Las Vegas.

In five UFC appearances, Herring has alternated between losses and wins since making his debut at UFC Fight Night 8, where he dropped a unanimous decision to wrestling-based heavyweight Jake O’Brien. Prior to Lesnar, Herring dispatched prospect Cheick Kongo at UFC 82 by unanimous decision.

A standout in the early days of Pride Fighting Championships, Herring carries an overall professional record of 28-14-1.

Velasquez, 26, is widely considered to be one of the top prospects amongst UFC heavyweights. With the exception of his most recent performance, a TKO win over Denis Stojnic at UFC Fight Night: Lauzon vs. Stephens, he has finished all of his fights within the first round. He is undefeated in five professional appearances.
