Former Ultimate Fighter contestant Seth Petruzelli will return to action when he takes on undefeated heavyweight prospect Dave Herman at EliteXC: Street Certified on February 16th at the United Bank Arena in Miami, Florida.
The news comes from our friends at MMA Junkie, who have confirmed the bout with members of Herman’s training camp.
The fight will be the EliteXC debut for both fighters at an event which also features a main event between internet street fighting legend Kimbo Slice and former UFC brawler Tank Abbott.
Petruzelli, who will be moving up from light heavyweight for the fight, rebounded from a submission loss to Wilson Gouveia at UFC Fight Night 9 with a TKO win over Sean Sallee at Knight Fight’s inaugural show in October.
Herman, who has not suffered the taste of defeat thus far in his career, has finished every one of his opponent via strikes or submission. His last fight was a win over Justin Kahn at a Maximum Combat show in December where he submitted Kahn with a rear naked choke.
