was there no one else available besides Ed Herman, this fight was potentially going to turn Miller into a serious competitor and now???nothing
Quarry-would be great whats leites up to-you would think this guy would want to redeem himself asap

quickest turnaround in any ufc fight? I can't remember someone fought two events back to back. Especially considering herman fought a full 3 rounds and took some good shots in that fight, it's hard to believe he'll be coming in at 100%

Okami in line for a shot for beating Miller? I guess if Leites can go from McFedries to a shot anything is possible. If he were to have got the shot it doesn't seem like he earned it, I guess he beat a former champion in Tanner, but his fight with Lister wasn't even televised. Nothing but bad news all around for Okami. I wish that guy could stay healthy. It seems like the 185lb title picture is going to pass him by, with the winner of Maia / Marquardt surely being next in line for the shot. The only thing he has going for him is being the last person to person to "beat" Silva. Aside from that I don't see how he is at all a marketable fighter, especially if you are trying to sell this as a main event for a PPV. Plus, with Silva having only a few fights left and wanting only "super fights" to finish off with, I don't see the allure for him either (aside from avenging a loss, which I am sure he's not too sore about).

Jason MacDonald fought at 87 & 88 and there were a few others before him, anyways I'm still taking Miller.

I think Herman is a better replacement then Quarry would be...and on this short of notice, I think its a solid replacement for sure!


2 back 2 backers on this card as replacements..X and Ed..thats crazy!

rooting hard for herman but this is a bad matchup for him. herman has been caught in submissions before and his sub defense has even cost him fights when he wasn't submitted (kendall grove fight), i can't pick ed in this fight.

Hard to pick herman here, after the quick turn around. Gotta go with Miller by sub or decision.

Okami can't catch a break.
