Dave Herman and John-Olav Einemo at UFC 131Maybe the third time will be the charm for Roy Nelson at UFC 146.

Originally set to face Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva on the card in May, Nelson lost that opponent when main event fighter Alistair Overeem was pulled from the show and reshuffling took place.

In his place, Gabriel Gonzaga stepped in to face Nelson. Well, now Gonzaga is also out due to injury, so in steps former Sengoku fighter Dave Herman, who faces Nelson at UFC 146.

UFC officials announced the switch on Tuesday night.

Dave Herman steps into the bout on just over three weeks notice and looks to get back on track after suffering a loss to Stefan Struve in his last bout in the Octagon.

Herman won in his initial fight in the UFC defeating Jon Olav Einemo, but came up short in his second bout.

Now Herman steps in to face former Ultimate Fighter Roy Nelson in a bout that could have Fight of the Night or Knockout of the Night written all over it.
