Unbeaten rising star Cain Velasquez will face his stiffest test to date on Saturday, June 13th when he steps into the UFC Octagon at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany to battle perennial contender Heath Herring in a heavyweight bout on the increasingly stacked UFC 99 card.

Also added to the card is a heavyweight matchup pitting England’s Mostapha Al Turk against unbeaten UFC newcomer Todd Duffee.

Tickets for UFC 99 - which is headlined by the highly-anticipated bout between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva - are on sale now.

5-0 as a pro, Velasquez has stormed through his three UFC opponents thus far, stopping Brad Morris, Jake O’Brien, and Denis Stojnic. But the two-time All-American wrestler from Arizona State has never faced a seasoned vet like the 28-14, 1 NC Herring, whose list of opponents reads like a Who’s Who of MMA that includes Brock Lesnar, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (three times), Cheick Kongo, Enson Inoue, Vitor Belfort, Mark Kerr, Igor Vovchanchyn, Fedor Emelianenko, and Mirko Cro Cop.

Needless to say, if Velasquez gets by Herring, he will skyrocket up the heavyweight ranks and continue on his road to a world title shot, but ‘The Texas Crazy Horse’ will be looking to stop the 26-year old’s rise while pinning a loss on his perfect record in the process.
