A light heavyweight bout has been announced for UFC 201 on July 30 in Atlanta as Nikita Krylov will meet Ed Herman in a bout that will likely be part of the preliminary card.
The fight booking was announced by the UFC on Friday.
UFC 201 will come from the Phillips Arena on July 30 and the event will be headlined by a welterweight title fight as Robbie Lawler defends the UFC 170 pound title against Tyron Woodley.
Krylov (20-4) is currently on a four fight winning streak and is coming off a submission win against Francimar Barroso. During his current winning streak, all of the wins have come by stoppage and three of those wins have come by submission. Herman (23-11, 1NC) returned to light heavyweight earlier this year and defeated Tim Boetsch.
