UFC president Dana White confirmed Jake Shields' return to the middleweight division, as the former Strikeforce champion will meet Ed Herman at UFC 150. The card takes place August 11 from Denver, Colorado.
Shields (27-6-1) picked up his second UFC win when he defeated Yoshihiro Akiyama earlier this year. Losses to Georges St-Pierre and Jake Ellenberger, though, sparked Shields to think about a return to middleweight.
Herman (20-7) has went 4-1 in his previous five fights, winning the last three. His only loss during this recent hot streak came at the hands of Aaron Simpson.
Along with announcing the fight, White added, "I like that fight!" on his Twitter account. What do you think fight fans? Is this a bout that excites you? Let us know in the Comments section below.
