Two veterans meet on the main card in Canada and they have a hefty 33 UFC fights between them. Gian Villante takes on Ed Herman who has been fighting since 2003. It’s great to see Herman back as he hasn’t fought for over 15 months and although he is past his prime, he is always looking to put on a show for the fans and he has a great match-up in Villante who shares the same desire. That said, they are both hungry to get back on a winning track.


Expect everything in this fight – heavy exchanges of leather, wrestling, clinches and a lot of aggression. Herman is more comfortable on the ground and if he experiences any discomfort on the feet, expect him to try and take the fight to the ground.

However, Villante’s powerful boxing will be his best weapon against the weathered chin of Herman and will be confident of securing the finish.

Winner: Villante via KO/TKO
