On Nov. 5, at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, a UFC Fight Night event will take place between Parisian (15-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and Sherman (16-10 MMA, 4-9 UFC).
The media was informed about the matchup on Monday by two sources with knowledge of the booking, but they preferred to remain anonymous because the organization has not yet made an official announcement.
His first four UFC appearances have been divided. The Dana White’s Contender Series alumnus defeated Alan Baudot in the second round of UFC on ESPN 38 in June to get back on the winning side of the ledger. He received a Performance of the Night bonus for the result.
Sherman, however, achieved a much-needed triumph in July at UFC on ESPN 39 when he TKO’d Jared Vanderaa for a bonus. The victory ended a four-fight losing streak for him.
