Its good hes getting an opportunity to redeem himself so early. But if he comes out, continuously gets taken down, and then complains after the fight that his wrestling blows, then I will continue to hate him.

I'm giving he the benefit of the doubt. He said he had a injury, I'll go for it. He pulls the same stuff and he lost a fan, I won't hate on him, I just won't want to watch him fight

I see nothing wrong with giving him another fight due to the lack of HW's in the UFC.


Maybe he should fight Pe de Pano? Is Mir done? Gonzaga?

mir is not done at all, but herring lose's this fight its over for him

yeah, he better not lose cause i doubt pride would have him back seeing that he can't compete with their top heavy weights. i think he was hoping that he could hold on and get the ref to stand them up so he could have a kerr moment

The trend in the ufc seems to be new fighters lose two or 3 in a row and your done so heath better step it up

he better work on takedown defense and be more agressive. or it will be stupid.

I really want to see him stick around just to beef up and legitimize the UFC HW division beyond Sylvia, CC, and AA. rumor is he's fighting Mir, who as good as he once was is really overmatched and tentative now. When you fight scared, and favor a past injury, it spells doom for you and that's Mir today. If Mir loses, he's done in UFC, and if Herring loses, I think he gets one more shot in the UFC. AA vs. Herring would be a fun match to watch in the future because we know they both will bang, even Buentello vs Herring would be exciting. Anyways, Herring, because he was a big PRIDE signing will get every opportunity in the UFC because, just like any sport, when you go out and get the big name free agent you can't give up on them too early.

Herring better come out explosive as ever in this fight. But if he does get taken down repeatedly and cry about it, then he doesn't belong in MMA.

I think his cardio is a big issue now too, he has just looked out of shape since his injury. It's a shame because I really liked Mir. Stupid motorcycles, I'll stick with my tricycle thanks.

If he's fighting Mir, he better keep it standing. If it hits the ground and he's in Mir's guard, it's over.

give him a can to fight

Don't think he can beat Pe de Pano or Mir.

If they want to Sell Herring the wont put him against good BJJ guys. He will get subbed. Hopefully its a striker. Love to see Heath Bang it out.
