TUF 13 Finale: Ed Herman Ready to Fight After Nearly 2 Years out of Cage
The Ultimate Fighter Season 13 Finale Features The Return of Ed 'Short Fuse' Herman
Bleacher Report's Nick Caron:
With all of the injuries that have hit the UFC recently, fans and the organization itself would agree that it’s a welcome change to see someone like former The Ultimate Fighter finalist, Ed Herman, coming back from a long layoff due to an injury of his own.
We last saw Herman at UFC 102, all the way back in August 2009. It was on that night, in a fight with Aaron Simpson, that Herman’s career changed forever.
“I tore my ACL. It was in the first round when Aaron shot in on me and kind of wrapped his leg around mine, and in doing that, it hyper-extended my knee, and I think that’s where the damage was done,” he told me. “I was able to finish the round, but if you watch the fight video, you could see that I was definitely limping as I went back to the corner.”
Indeed he was. The knee looked absolutely horrible, but true to his occupation, he fought through it as much as he physically could.
“The referee came over to me and said, 'You blew out your knee.' I said, 'No way man, I’m fine,'" Herman described the incident. “I came out in the second round and I walked forward just fine. I guess you can walk forward fine with a torn ACL, but moving side to side is the problem.”
