MMAMania.com is reporting that PRIDE and UFC veteran Heath Herring has agreed to step in and replace the injured UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman in his bout against Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is coming off of a first-round submission loss to former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir. Most saw this upcoming fight with Coleman as a great way to put the former WWE superstar “over” and into a state of legitimacy in the UFC heavyweight division.
If this bout agreement with Heath Herring is in fact a reality, Lesnar will have a much more relevant and somewhat more dangerous opponent on his hands at UFC 87: “Seek and Destroy”. The event is set to take place on August 9 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The show will mark the UFC’s first time in Minnesota.
