Sources indicated when speaking to MMAWeekly.com that verbal agreements are in place for the Feb 15 bout for the show taking place in Omaha, Neb.
Stefan Struve will look to make it two in a row when he gets back in action in February after submitting Pat Barry in his last trip to the Octagon.
The 6’11″ Dutchman has gone 6-3 so far in his UFC career, and at only 23-years of age, the sky is still the limit for the young man fighting out of Holland.
Getting ready for his second trip to the Octagon will be former Sengoku fighter Dave Herman, who was forced out of his last fight at UFC 136 after failing a pre-fight drug test for marijuana.
Herman has been tested since that time and had no issues, and will look to get his UFC career back on track when he faces Struve in February.
Herman has been training alongside former Strikeforce champion and current UFC light heavyweight title contender Dan Henderson at Team Quest in Temecula, Calif. In his debut fight, Herman knocked out Team Golden Glory fighter Jon Olav Einemo.
There’s been no word if the fight will make it onto the main card for the Fuel TV broadcast, but with both fighters coming off of wins, it would seem a likely candidate.
