Nogueira meets Herman at UFC 153

A heavyweight tilt between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Dave Herman has been announced for UFC 153.

The bout was first reported by Tatame, and the UFC has since announced the contest.

Also announced recently, Anderson Silva and Stephan Bonnar will clash in the evening’s main event, while Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has been replaced by Fabio Maldonado, who meets Glover Teixeira on the card.

UFC 153 takes place on October 13 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Herman last competed at UFC 146, losing to Roy Nelson via technical knockout. He has lost two straight in the UFC after debuting with a technical knockout win back in June of 2011.

Meanwhile, Nogueira’s last time inside the Octagon, like Herman’s, hardly went as planned. The Brazilian lost to Frank Mir via technical submission after refusing to tap to a kimura.
