Imes Returns to Face Herring at UFC 69


‘The Hillbilly Heartthrob’ is back. After a layoff of a year and a day come fight night, ‘Ultimate Fighter 2’ finalist Brad Imes makes his return to the Octagon on April 7th when he faces perennial heavyweight contender Heath Herring at UFC 69 in Houston, Texas.

The 6 foot 7 Imes, owner of a 2-2 UFC record (5-2 overall), is coming off two losses that were anything but defeats in the eyes of MMA fans, as he left it all in the Octagon in his entertaining wars with Rashad Evans and Dan Christison.

Sidelined by injury, Imes hasn’t seen any action since the April 2006 loss to Christison, but now back at 100%, the Missouri native is ready to reintroduce himself to the MMA world with his bout against Herring.

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre defends his crown for the first time against TUF4 winner Matt Serra in the main event of UFC 69: Shootout, and the card also features a welterweight showdown between two of the division’s brightest young stars, Diego Sanchez and Josh Koscheck.

Oh yay. Maybe we'll see Heath in shape this time. Or maybe at least realising this is MMA and not kickboxing.

‘The Hillbilly Heartthrob’ is possibly the worst nickname for an MMA fighter I have heard yet, and there is a lot of competition. Anyways, hopefully HH will return in top form, and one of them will get a brutal KO.

I agree. Maybe I'm just shallow, but I always find myself pulling against people because they have stupid nicknames.

I hope Sanchez runs through Koscheck! Don't particularly like either but Koscheck is a dick and i do respect Diego's skills

I've always wanted to be introduced at someting as "a man who needs no introduction"

At which point the announcer stops and I walk in without an introduction.

I am informed by my gym-mates that the ring is 'not the place for kaufman humor'

They have a point, but that would still be pretty amusing.

man being a big HH fan I really hope he bothers to get into shape and bring his A game to this fight - his last fight was just horrible and he looked like he shouldn't have been in there...

Imes is apparently starting a Militech sattelite school right up the street from me.

If that isn't a MUST MISS, I don't know what is. And I understand Imes' game was off after his mother died right after TUF, but was he ever really any good? I don't remember any of his fights prior to the finals and he got beat by the smallest man in the whole damn house! (Props to Rashad Evans, though - he's come a long way from his pray-and-lay days.)
