Derek Brunson’s sudden stomach illness forced a planned fight with Ed Herman to be canceled at the last minute recently.
Now, according to Herman, the two will meet at the end of January at UFC 183.
Brunson (12-3) has won three of four inside the Octagon, while Herman (22-10) is a 16-fight veteran. “Short Fuse” sports a 9-7 mark all-time over those bouts.
The two had quite the Twitter-battle following Brunson’s exit from the first planned encounter.
