Kyle Noke was scheduled to face Tom Lawlor at UFC on Versus 5 in a solid middleweight bout. Unfortunately, an injury has forced Lawlor off the card. The Telegraph is now reporting that Lawlor's replacement will be Ed Herman, making for a fight that is just as, if not more, interesting.

Noke is currently riding a five fight win streak, dating back to his February 2008 KO loss to Scott Smith. He also appeared on The Ultimate Fighter, where he lost to Kris McCray. Since the TUF stint, Noke has gone 3-0 in UFC bouts, finishing each in under two rounds.

The world seemed to completely forget about Ed Herman. I like his chances against Noke though. I think he can take Kyle down pretty easily and will work some ground and pound. He just has to watch for triangles.

"Filthy" is one of those fighters that adds a bit of spice to an event, win or lose.

Another injury and hit to this card.

But good replacement, though.

Read the title. He's doing a great impersonation of Tito Ortiz just by backing out of the fight with an injury.

One of my favorites from the recent TUF seasons. Hopefully he can make this his coming out party and win in impressive fasion like he did against Camozzi.

haha i guess, but a lot of people have backed out due to injuries lately....maybe he is just doing a group impersonation? lol

but a pure Tito mock would be to make a grocery list of excuses after the fight as to why he lost...or walk in with a pornstar to the weigh ins
