hey guys, i dont have a link or a source to give you all for this one, but this came straight from the horses mouth..

i was at combat fighting championship 3 tonight here in orlando, and mr brad imes was fighting on the card.. after knocking his opponent out in about 20 seconds with a huge right knee from a thai clinch followed by three unprotected punches to the head, brad announced that he will be fighting in houston against heath herring.. take this is a rumor if you like, but that is straight from the mouth of brad imes..

imes vs herring, UFC69

He's a huge guy, I hope Heath is healed and in shape this time. Otherwise this could be the beginning of the end for Heath, since Brad couldn't beat Rashad( who always should have been a lightheavy IMO). Sill, the militech guys claimed he was coming along well recently. Maybe Imes would beat him no matter what. However, I would really like Heath to return to form.

Thats an interesting matchup, but I'll never bet against Herring, hes just the complete mma fighter.

Who was Imes fighting tonight?

I think this is a great match up. Two guys that are willing to stand in front of each other and hit eachother faces. Can't go wrong with that!

he fought this guy named chris adams tonight.. the guy was 6'4, 265, but you could tell he was afraid of imes (it was only his 2nd pro fight).. he ducked one punch, went for a very sloppy shot, almost got caught in a guillotine, then imes switched to a thai clinch real quick and launched a right knee that crashed right into the guys head.. the guy hit the mat, imes came down on him with three more punches and the ref stopped it.. the guy was on the mat for a good couple minutes..

also saw luigi fioravanti there with paul rodriguez and seth petruzelli, they were cornering ben saunders (who won the CFC WW belt tonight) and all the other ATT Orlando fighters..

also, commentary was done by tj de santis and none other than pat miletich.. it was cool seeing pat in person

Brad Imes was originally supposed to visit our gym for a seminar but got switched up with Pat Miletich who's coming on March 3 (can't wait ), anyways Brad has monster strength and has only been training in the sport for little over 2 years with no previous martial arts experience. Herring should definetly not underestimate Imes because he's in it to win it, and seems to have no quit. For those who have only seen his fights on TUF if you ever have the chance to catch him in WEC he's given some awesome fights, and has the similar mentality of Forrest Griffin, "Beat the crap out of me, Piss me off, and I'll come at you twice as hard".

Thanks for the heads up!

Heath has performed well in the past against the bigger guys, probably from training with his brother

Should be a great fight and as previous poster mentioned Heath seems to do well against big fighters.

Hopefully Brad won't use his tackling abilities and bring the fight to the ground

LIkes the fact that Brad Imes is back. Always like the fact UFC broguth him in. Althletic big man. They needed to do exactly what they did with him, get him in and let him train some more before coming back. I still like Herring in that matchup.
