Two fights have been added to UFC’s September 12th “Fight Night” card. One of them is a replacement bout that sees John Allan replace Gerald Meerschaert in a bout against Ed Herman. The new matchup was first reported by Guilherme Cruz and Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.
Allan now has two consecutive bouts set up, as he is also scheduled to fight Roman Dolidze at UFC 255 in November. The fight will be Allan’s return following a one-year suspension from drug testing board USADA. The positive test came after his UFC debut, which came in July of 2019 against Mike Rodriguez.
Herman will aim to continue his winning streak, as his last two fights were wins over Patrick Cummins and Khadis Ibragimov. The winning streak is a resurgence in Herman’s career, as the last time before that he had more than one win-in-a-row was in a 2011 to 2012 stint.
The bout between Herman and Meerschaert has been attempted twice now, with it’s first cancellation coming in early August after Meerschaert tested positive for COVID-19.
Sabina Mazo vs. Justine Kish
Also added to the September 12th card is a flyweight matchup between Sabina Mazo and Justine Kish. The matchup was first reported by Marc Raimondi of ESPN.
Mazo will look to follow up on her first two wins in the UFC, as she defeated Shana Dobson and JJ Aldrich before. Kish will look for her second 2020 win, as a January bout saw her defeated Lucie Pudilova via decision.
