Ed Herman Replaces Lorenz Larkin, Will Face Ronaldo Souza At January Strikeforce Card

Ed Herman will become the first signed UFC fighter to compete for Strikeforce, as he replaces an injured Lorenz Larkin in a match up with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.

Officials announced that Herman-Souza will take place at a catch-weight of 194 pounds. Souza is a former Strikeforce middleweight champion.

Herman has gone 20-8 in his career. The 32-year-old has not lost in four fights, though his last bout was changed to a no-contest after Jake Shields failed his post-fight drug test.

Souza (16-3) has gone 6-1 with Strikeforce. His lone loss came at the hands of Luke Rockhold in a bout for the title.

Herman-Souza will be part of the Showtime-televised main card at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine on January 12 from Oklahoma City.
