Aaron Simpson vs. Ed Herman back on for UFC 102

After a series of bout changes reminiscent of a feverish game of musical chairs, Aaron Simpson and Ed Herman are once again set to face off, this time at UFC 102.

The UFC made the bout official earlier this afternoon.

UFC 102 will take place on August 29 from the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon.

Simpson is a two-time All American wrestler that went on to coach for Arizona State. He currently trains at Arizona Combat Sports along side the likes of Ryan Bader, Jamie Varner, C.B.Dollaway and Jacob McClintock. Simpson possesses a professional fighting record of 5-0 with all of his victories coming by way of knockout.

Herman recently came back from three consecutive defeats with the UFC by derailing David Loiseau at UFC 97. He will be looking to stay afloat in the UFC by notching a win over the undefeated Simpson in August.
