RIO DE JANEIRO - It was a three-step process for Dave Herman to wind up in a high-profile slot at UFC 153.
The turnaround time was less than ideal. The opponent, though, was pretty good. And then there was the location. That sealed the deal.
So on Saturday, Herman takes on Brazilian legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in "Big Nog's" home country of Brazil at UFC 153 in Rio de Janeiro.
