In his most recent bout in February, Varner defeated veteran Drew Fickett at XFC 16 in just 40 seconds.

Herman (21-3) will be making his third appearance inside the Octagon where he has posted a 1-1. In his UFC debut, Herman recorded a technical knockout of John Olav Einemo at UFC 131. He would then suffer a a TKO loss to Stefan Struve at UFC on FUEL TV in February.

UFC 146 takes place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 26th. In the main event of the card, UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos will put his title on the line against former champion Frank Mir.
