A middleweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Cincinnati as former Ultimate Fighter finalist Ed Herman takes on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Rafael 'Sapo' Natal at the upcoming event on May 10.

UFC officials announced the new fight on Thursday.

The two fighters were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 167 but due to injuries and moves that had to be made, Herman ended up facing Thales Leites while Natal was pulled to face Tim Kennedy in the main event of the UFC Fight for the Troops show in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Unfortunately both fighters fell to defeat in their respective bouts, so now Herman and Natal will look to get back on the winning track when they face off on the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Cincinnati.

The show in Ohio will take place on May 10 at the U.S. Bank Arena, but as of now UFC officials have not confirmed a main event for the show.  Tickets for the event will go on sale as of March 21 at 10 am ET.
