Ed Herman returned to the win column at UFC on FOX 8, with a unanimous decision victory over Trevor Smith in a battle which earned both fighters an extra $50k for “Fight of the Night” bonuses. Herman made in an appearance on the final Strikeforce card, but was submitted in the first round by Ronaldo Souza to snap a three-fight win streak.
