Reports comming out of certain fight camps and some sources have surfaced that the UFC is ugently seeking someone to fill Mark Coleman's slot against Brock Lesnar.

Sources have led to the UFC in talks with Heath Herring's camp as a replacement, but nothing is official yet.

Wow. I thought they would have protected that investment a little more.

Exactly what I was thinking. Only worse. I like this fight and Lesnar should win.

I don't know enough about Herring but from the little I've seen, there haven't been submissions, therefore I say Lesnar wins by GNP.

Wow... A lot of you guys are seeming like this is a gimme for Lesnar.. This would be a super tough fight for him and I see Heath dominating it standing then pulling off a sub from his back, kimura would make sense to me

Herring is a vet, and will give Lesnar trouble. Lesnar looked good for about 45 seconds against Mir. I wouldn't give this a free pass for Brock, but I do think he can take Herring down and win via GnP.

Herring is not very impressive at all, but i can see him winning this fight just based on experience.......
