In the first pay-per-view fight of Saturday night's UFC 143 card, Clifford Starks fought Ed Herman in a middleweight bout. For Herman, it was his third consecutive win after missing nearly two years with a knee injury. For Starks, it was the first loss of his MMA career.
"He was laying some good right hands on me. Fortunately I've got a good chin because he hit me hard a few times," Herman said. "When I started attacking with the choke I didn't feel him fighting it so I kept going and thankfully got the finish."
