A change has been made to the upcoming UFC on Versus 5 card as Tom Lawlor has been forced off the card with an injury and Ed Herman will replace him, now facing Kyle Noke in Milwaukee.

Sources close to the switch confirmed the new bout with MMAWeekly.com on Friday. The Daily Telegraph first reported the switch.

More than a year away from the sport due to injuries slowly built a fire inside former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor Ed Herman, but he was finally able to unleash that when he returned at the TUF 13 finale show in June.

Herman blasted Tim Credeur early in the first round and finished the fight with strikes, winning by TKO in only :48 seconds.

Now the former Team Quest fighter will step in and face Australian Kyle Noke, who is currently on a five fight win streak with 3 straight stoppage wins in the UFC.

The bout will take place in Milwaukee as part of the UFC on Versus 5 undercard.
