    Jake Shields Returns to Middleweight and Faces Ed Herman at UFC 150


    It looks like Jake Shields has made his decision and will move back to middleweight as he faces Ed Herman at UFC 150 in Denver, CO on Aug 11.

    UFC President Dana White announced the new fight via Twitter on Monday.

    Following a win over Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 144 in Japan, Shields stated that he was contemplating a move back to middleweight, where he spent just under a year of his career between 2009 and 2010.

    During that time while in Strikeforce, Shields went 3-0 picking up wins over Robbie Lawler, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller and most notably a victory over Dan Henderson in 2010.

    Now the Cesar Gracie black belt will move back to middleweight after spending his last four fights at 170lbs where he went 2-2 in the UFC.

    Welcoming Shields back to the middleweight division will be former Team Quest fighter and Ultimate Fighter alum Ed Herman.

    After suffering serious injuries that sidelined Herman for all of 2010, he returned with a vengeance in 2011 and has now reeled off three wins in a row.

    Most recently, Herman stopped former Arizona State wrestler Clifford Starks with a rear naked choke to mark his third win in a row, while also notching his third finish in a row.

    Now Herman will face Shields in what should be a main card bout for the UFC 150 card headed to Denver’s Pepsi Center in August.

    be nice to see that happen. herman has some heart. he has been against it in the ufc and really crafted out some wins and after taking the shots he did in his last fight and get the win was something. alot of guys would have quit after starks smacking those straight punches to the chop's like that.

    I never cared for Ed Herman, and I'm definitely not a fan of his... but even though I'm more of a fan of Jake Shields, he just hasn't impressed me in his transition from Strikeforce to the UFC.

    This one could easily go either way IMO, but Jake has the better winning record over more skilled fighters... I'm gonna go with Shields by decision in this one.

    I see a Shields win here too, not done great in UFC but may well look more at home back at MW.
